I think it's wrong for services like hbogo to require my real password to know that I have hbo thru verizon. If that info gets hacked the hacker can invade my info for my router password and access my home network. There should be another way for them to verify the info.
But it is used to validate that you have HBO and that is what they store.
That is why people complain about not being able to use HBOGo when Verizon is having problems.
