First Direct password fiasco

Why is my bank limiting my Internet Banking password? “It must be between 8 and 12 characters long and can include letters and numbers only.”. This flies in the fact of all best practice when it comes to passwords.

There should be no limit with regards to length or content. If I were the boss of the idiots who decided on this policy they’d have been fired before breakfast.I’d like to thank First Direct for for making my password less secure than it otherwise might have been!

I have a whole rant about passwords and stupid things companies do with them but no time to write about it now. Look out for a blog post coming soon where I seriously vent my spleen. Meanwhile… grrrr!
