Scrap annoying passwords


Recommended Posts

So I don't login very often, but every single time I do I get annoyed by the overly complex password requirements set by Fibaro.
The current password policy is based on a 20 year old doctrine that is quite outdated and needs to be up to par modern standards.
So my suggestion is to scrap the current password requirements of using Lowercase, Uppercase, numerals and special characters in combination with a minimum 10 key chain.
As those requirements won't make a password any safer, and a modern brute force will break such password in no time at all, it only makes it more or less impossible for users to remember their passwords.
And instead I propose adding 2FA support and be done with annoyingly complex passwords. 


I'm tired of having to request a new password every time I login from a new device.
