The Mojang password requirements are getting extreme

I had to reset my password today because I'd forgotten my old one.  I made up a new one that was 14 characters long, and had a mixture of upper case, lower case, numerals, and special characters, and it was still rejected as being "too weak."

That's crazy. So what are the requirements now?

Prayin' for a 20!

gcc thorin.c -pedantic -o Thorin
compile successful

Did a little googling and they specifically do a dictionary check for common words in the password, this is the unusual requirement. You will fail by having a common word in there regardless of how long or complex the rest of the password is.

So you can't use "correct horse battery staple"?

I had to go through this again today.  Fortunately though, today I got away with a 10 character password.

I wish they'd use a similar system to NordVPN, where logging in is done via a browser window.  That way I can have Chrome remember my passwords for me as I am completely unable to remember them for myself.

Mr. Analog

Speaking of passwords when is the switch to Microsoft account happening

Does anyone know?

Soon I hope. For some reason I can actually remember my MS password.
