Discussion on: Developers Dilemma - Storing Passwords

Hi A.J. and thanks for your article! I'm currently developing a web app and when I designed the login system I spent a lot of time trying to decide if I should use 3rd party systems or roll out my own.

But there is one thing that made me go my own way, and it's the fact that to change some critical settings I want users to enter their password. How could we do this if we use a 3rd party system? With a 3rd party system we don't have the password so the only way would be maybe sending a confirmation email...

Is there something I'm missing here? Do you think there is any way to do what I want using a 3rd party auth system?
