    Me too, I couldn't access the forums until I'd changed. Mine was two thousand and something days though.
    Unless I say otherwise 'you' means the general you not you specifically.

    My password was something like 265 days old - at least I think that's the number it said.

    Password update prompt

    Hi everyone

    As eagle-eyed regular forum members have noticed already, we're asking you all to update your passwords. You should be doing this regularly for your own peace of mind.

    Some hadn't been updated for some time and we want to make sure you change them regularly.

    Thanks for your patience. Have a great weekend.

    Andrea

    And I thought that as long as you used different passwords for different sites there isn't really an advantage to changing passwords regularly - with the accompanying problems of for ever changing them for so many different sites.
