    Forum just prompted me for a password change "because my old one was 365 days old".

    Should I be worried?

    True, couldn't access anything without changing it, though.

    I changed mine. The old one was old indeed.
    Same thing with my yahoo mail. Have been using the same 5 characters password for more than 10 years, then last month every time I singed in, yahoo kept asking for a new password.

    No worries guys this is correct, you are required to change passwords once every year.

    You don't have to... neither do I and I still got this. Glad it's intended.

    But what if you change your password to something the hacker then guesses?

    And your old one was secure?

    lol
