I can see the reason to change some passwords, say on bank accounts, though I resent being forced to change them on a regular basis. What really drives me crazy is the need to change passwords on things like Scrabble and Apple Apps. What is a hacker going to do with my Scrabble games? Play them for me? I can’t see how anyone could download apps to their own computer using my password, or why they’d want to. As for Apple passwords in general, every time I try to enter one they tell me it is the wrong password, even though I have it written down and it worked the last time I used it. I have many Apple passwords, none of which work. But when I go through their ridiculous system of changing it once again, I can’t use any of the passwords I have used in the past year! As of now, I have no idea which of ten or more passwords i have written down will work—presumably none of them. When I do successfully change my Apple password I get a message that my ICloud password is incorrect. I change it to my new password and when I go back to the App store, I’m told that my new password is incorrect and all I can do is change it and go through the whole asinine, incomprehensible exercise once again. Out of frustration I went into an Apple store to get my Apple password changed so I would have one password for all my Apple accounts. They changed it for me. By the time I got home, about half an hour later, the new password would not work for any Apple program.
Whenever my iphone updates, I have to reset my At&t password on my phone…which I’ve usually forgotten since my computer ‘remembers’ it, so I have to go through the tedious task of resetting my At&t password, and it is extremely picky as to what it accepts. I am pretty sure I have this one memorized, but it won’t work for my phone….
