Password policies are often just set by the whim of some web dev.
I just attempted to sign into Barnes & Noble site so I could buy something.
It's been about 6 months since I signed in so in their infinite wisdom they told me :

paraphrase:
"Your password has expired since you haven't signed in lately."


So, I had to get an email link, and change my password. I tried to use the same one I had previously used and they knew it was the same one. I guess they just checked the hash...hope they don't store the pwd in cleartext. Unsure | :~

Think about how dumb this really is. If a hacker had the password then she would've signed in and kept it fresh. But since the password hadn't been used they think it has been compromised in some way. That makes no sense.Thumbs Down | :thumbsdown:

Plus, now they used more time of a valid customer / user and I had to update my password generator to use the new key (password manager).
Oy!
