If you're still trying to use "complicated" passwords...
You’re doing it wrong.
The person responsible for those weak-password rules has already admitted that he was a bureaucrat, with absolutely no computer knowledge whatsoever.
The NIST has officially reversed course and strongly recommends that we no longer use password weakening rules.
They also say that we should not be forcing password resets unless the user wants it reset or there is evidence of the account being breached.
The updates are broken down into 3 sections, with section “b” being the most relevant to this e-mail.
As a follow up, I saw an article in the Wall Street Journal regarding this topic.
That may be pay-walled, so another variant from Gizmodo.
Re: If you're still trying to use "complicated" passwords...
This is all accurate… but unrelated to the product here.
In fact, most recommendations are now that you use a password manager to handle your pws since the biggest threat is password reuse.
Or better, use bitwarden.com. Also supports Linux and can be used free for up to 2 users. Or, as it’s open source, host your own password server if you wish.
Best password manager I’ve come across so far.
