Never give your password to anyone that you wouldn't trust to play Yourself
when the chips hit the fan.   

If it's google under some guise and they've any useful priv, they should
never need your password anyway; they should use their own backend admin

If it's just some person out there and they aren't a close enough friend,
such that you need to ask, the answer is obviously no, don't give them your
password :)
