    Just happened to me too and my first thought was 'has MSE been hacked?'

    Not again!

    I wonder what would happen if someone were to use !!!8217; as a password?

    Same here

    A total farce seeing as you can just enter the same password again
    if you lend someone £20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it

    This is ridiculous. Will not be good for retention of forum membership.

    What is this nonsense? I only changed my password last week and just changed it back to what it was so not much use if you can reuse. But why 5 days?

    That's good to know, I hate coming up with new passwords and once a week is going to be a complete pita.

    Anyway same for me, had to change password again today after 5 days, come on MSE there's no need for that.

    Just changed mine again as well after 5 days, this is becoming a nuisance.

    "your password in 5 days old and has therefore expired" (my emphasis)

    What's next, change it every minute ?

    I "changed" it to the same one. Sort it out MSE.

    Are you serious?

    I change my password 6 months ago...

    I change my password a few days ago....

    Now I have to reset AGAIN!!!!!

    I am awaiting two things...

    1) A half-hearted apology and no real explanation from MSE

    2) a message on my screen..."Your password is 5 minutes old and had therefore expired"!!!!!

    Come on!....April Fools is a couple of months away yet!

    Same problem. Password expired after 5 days. Rather ridiculous IMO.
