    Do we really need to change passwords every 35 days??

    Mine says 120 days. LOL What in the world is going on? I've never had a password expire anywhere in my life. Sounds fishy to me.

    I don't mean to get all high and mighty on you all, but seriously....change your password every 30 days or so. It is for your own safety. And if you use something like lastpass, it's not really that painful.

    Everyone got a different number of days based on their last change - the passwords were just reset today, so that's why.
