Password Requirements Are The Death Of Me
Ok. So Ive been really busy this summer so I haven’t posted something all summer. I try to log back in, and hey look at that, I forgot my password! This is a big problem for me because my g- to password doesn’t have a number in it, doesn’t have capital letters, its just simple. 7 letters, no symbols. It was formed in the glory days way before all these websites decided its important for you to be secure on the internet… What kind of bullshit is that?
Now its my job to remember password requirements for each website I log into in order to remember the necessary adjustments to my password i need to make. But does the website give you those requirements? NOPE. Not until you get an email telling you that you need to form a new password. And now, i gotta remember that i used my shitty secondary password for this website because you cant re use your old old one.
Whats the point of this? My original password is complicated enough that nobody will ever guess what it is. Ever. Guaranteed. So why is there an 8 character limit, that needs one capital letter, one number, one symbol, one lowercase letter and one letter with a little spanish accent over it? Are they trying to keep me out of my own account also? If some hacker finds out my password its my fault, and if they do, is not like a few symbols and numbers will help save my ass.
Or I can just make a new password that follows all these requirements… Naahhh im good.
By the way, That Rhody Ram, the reason I’m able to post this blog is because I have the iPad app that always stays logged in. What an incredible piece of technology.
