Why am I being forced to change my password? If I change my password, I would now have to store it in a word document on my computer and on my smartphone, thus making it vulnerable. It would also mean I would have to look it up everytime I use it. I have had the same password for 20 years. Why am being forced into making it vulnerable to theft or hijack?
