I had to change my password today due to a suspected breach. This, in its self, is a problem but not the problem I need answering today.
QUOTE: The longer the password is, the less likely it is that someone else will be able to guess it or otherwise find out what it is.
On your password help page you can find the above quote, so I am at a loss as to why I am limited to a 10 character password. Most of my passwords are 15+ characters and are easy for me to remember but hard to guess,s this limit is forcing me to change my typical password assigning behaviour.
I understand that a 10 character password may well be secure but why limit this at all? Why not allow unlimited password character? On the face of it, this limit seems pointless and purposefully infuriating.
Is there a valid reason for a 10 character limit??
