    After going through the steps to make a new password, after a week or two, my login credentials are no longer valid. I'm forced to make a new password all over again. It seems to happen if I don't login in a certain period of time. Does our passwords expire???

    That's odd. By next week, my password will be invalid and I'll have to do the 'forgot password' procedure all over again.

    are you sure you dont have short term memory loss disorder?
    maybe you forget your password and all other memories every week.

    I've had the same password here since I signed up at TPU. It doesn't expire. Maybe you're forgetting what your password is exactly (it's case-sensitive btw,) or you keep typing it wrong?

    I'm pretty sure my memory isn't failing me. As a test, I changed my password to 'password', a week later, when I tried to sign-in, I was greeted with invalid password.

    Was the test to see how fast your account could get hacked?

    Hmm. That's a possibility. But why would anyone want to do that me? I'm a nice guy

    Maybe Wiz could check out the server logs to see if someone else is resetting your password?

    No. Just trying to stress my point. An easy to remember password becomes invalid within a week after creating it. Of course, it has been changed since then.
