    Default 30 Day Password reset

    When was this introduced and why?

    What a massive pain in the arse this is. Every 30 days, logging into my Work PC, Tablet, Mobile & laptop to change the password.

    Is there really any reason? I have 30 day passwords for my shit at work, but that's data sensitive etc.

    This happens every time the board software gets updated. Don't think it's done intentionally.

    Normally someone complains quicker than this and it gets removed!

    I agree the 30 day requirement is a bit harsh, but each time it popped up, I just entered the same p/w as I previously had. Years ago that didn't work, but it's worked whenever I've seen that message for as long as I can remember.

    Please note, this is not good security practice at all, don't blame me if you follow this advice and get hacked.

    Thanks to Over Carl

    Never saw a problem other than Tapatalk not letting you in. You don't need to 'change it', you can enter the same one again

    ?? You had it back though. I saw your previous posts in the VIP thread, then they were deleted and your VIP was back?

    I take it that it was only temp whilst you sorted something out?
