When a site requires your password to have an upper case, a lower case, a number and be at least eight characters long, it’s sometimes a pain to think of something. But the site is trying to make your password more secure so it’s a hassle I can appreciate.
Then there are some sites a that are so concerned with secure passwords that they go a little overboard with their requirements. Like this set of rules from the Texas attorney general’s child support website.
I’m all for security and all, but can you imagine trying to remember that password in real life? On top of all the other passwords you have to remember? It’s not very in-the-wild friendly.
Thanks to Mashable for pointing this out!
