    Does BHW ask you to change your password every 74 days. It just asked me.....can't remember if I did it before?

    Here's a screenshot of the message I got today....couldn't log in...had to change my password....hope it wasn't a trick!

    I changed it when prompted because I couldn't access the forum without changing....very weird that everyone is getting a different day count for how old their password is.

    Anyway, I went back and changed my password again as somone suggested.

    i issued it with the recent fake cracks and programs and password theft due to downloads.
    Perfectly safe to change your pass i have set it to auto force users to change every 30 days

    Sorry for any issues caused.

    Same happened here. This same week I got the random Paypal message to change my password and re-verify info message when I logged in there also. Amazing how you have to do forced changes and re-verifications to access accounts you've had for years.
