    What is it with these bizarre strings of letters and numbers that keep appearing on this website !!!8217;t??

    Certain banks, NatWest included don't allow you to use symbols or punctuation marks in your password which seems daft- makes the password a good deal safer.
    Maybe that's also why folk are locked out?
    Being polite and pleasant doesn't cost anything! --
    Many thanks

    It's actually an apostrophe (or should be), some iPads are having problems apparently .
