    Hi,

    just got this message

    "your password is more than 6 days old and therefore expired"

    how often do we now need to change it?

    Mine did the same. Maybe it is some type of precautionary measure?
     
  6. Mate, This was happened due to vbulletin forum default Password Expiry, if we don't like this, then we must request BHW admin to choose the group, want and change the Password Expiry setting to 0 to disable time limits (AdminCP>Usergroups>Usergroups Manager>)

    It is due to the recent threads concerning Adware, so everybody has to reset their password as a precaution.
    Nothing to worry about.

    Actually it's healthy reminder form BHW admin to keep changing your password for safety measures.
