Had to temporarily change my password so my out-of-town elderly father could get help at cell store activating his Ting SIM (didn't want store tech to know my good password). Now when I try to change it back I get "New password cannot be the same as the last 8 passwords used"
Eight ?!?! Wow that is super annoying. Does not in any way "make sense"
Forcing people to generate new secure passwords on the fly is a sure fire way to force people to write down passwords which undoes any gain in security.
