Password Change Requiremnt

Postby fluttermoth » Sat Sep 02, 2017 12:43 pm

It's happened twice in the last few months; I've got a message that I can't view the forums until I've changed my password.

While I appreciate that the forum takes my security seriously, it seems a bit much that I'm having to change my password every month or so. I'm going to run out of things I can remember soon!

Is there any way of stopping this?

I've had that too, I just changed it something new and then back again to the original password. Irritating, but it worked.

That's a big bug bear of mine. It's understandable if it's a bank website or something important, but a fishkeeping forum ???
Too many websites are over zealous on this issue. It's self defeating, security wise as it only forces users to make a note of their many passwords either on their computers or on old fashioned paper.
