Just got an email that my password was changed by an administrator. Came on had to enter the new password. Went in to change it back to the same password I use for all my Internet forms to find out passwords need to contain 10 characters and include uppercase lower case a number and a symbol? Wtf I don't use such a complicated password for my online banking! It's a Internet public forum not hillary Clinton's email account with classified emails.

Password must contain 3 of one the 4 following requirements

• An uppercase letter (A – Z)

Password Strength is more intense than my Bank... really, for a forum with no monetary transactions? :headbang:

And underscore _ is not recognized as a "Symbol".

Done whining. Carry on.

Exactly. If I have to change this password every month and a half I am out. I would rather someone hack my profile than deal with that. What is the big deal if a BFC profile gets hacked anyway? Has that even ever happened??

I don't mind the one time necessity. The every 45 day thing probably ain't gonna fly with a lot of people.

LAST TIME MY JOB DOES 45 DAYS
For Yall it once a year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:cen::cen::headbang::cen:

Hello all,

Over the next few days we will be implementing some changes to our forum password strength and password expiration policies. To make sure you continue having the best experience possible on the community, we regularly monitor the site and the Internet to keep everyone's account information safe. We've recently become aware of a potential risk to some accounts coming from outside of this community. Just to be safe, we are implementing the following changes to improve security even further:

1) We are asking everyone to change their passwords (and will force a one time reset). Along with every user on the forum, new passwords will need to be more complex, and can't be simple words (sorry, you can't have "fluffy" as your password anymore!). Please use a password unique to this community. Reusing passwords can expose your account indirectly when other websites (Twitter, Linkedin, Badoo, etc) are compromised; and

2) Your passwords will expire on a 365 day basis. When you login on the 366th day, you will have to change it.

We'll also be sending out an email to users to let them know about the changes, in upcoming weeks.

Thanks all,

Helena
