    Because it's a security measure, not just for your convenience.

    Can't beleive you are a ComputerEngineer and making such a request, Or maybe your software aren't webbased or not requiring any means of telecomunication

    Seriously... both for your account AND for BHW security. When the system asks you to change it, your option is to change it or not login - your choice.

    It took you 15 minutes to change your password!? 15 minutes? It doesn't even take 15 seconds.

    BHW is so secure, it makes you change your password every 24 hours. Wonder what kind of fuck up happened on the backend?

    Me too don't like to change password very often. Just too much to manage passwords. As we all have multiple arena and have quite a number of passwords so yes sometimes its annoying.

    I had experience of changing and then forgetting it because did not saved the new pass :) .... but now its a habit to save the password when changed.

    I am thinking of how other experience guyz do this pass management? ... Do you have some good recommendation? ... or Do you guyz all Gods to let passes in your brain.

    Why not just alternate between 2 passwords? Why do you feel the need to make a new password for every change? lolwut.

    Frequently changing passwords reduces security imho. Because you have a harder time to remember you have to write it down or store on your computer/browser. This makes it more easily accessible by intersted third parties.

    Did everyone else get a demand to change their password again? This is the second time in 24 hours so far. What is the reason, did the site get hacked again?
