    Also, this gibberish if you intentionally left the "confirm password" field empty and that's even after a en_US redirection.

    • 请输入新的登录密码.
  • This was very painful to find a password that works with this one and that I can actually remember (I ended-up using my bank-account number because everything else failed).

  • Although the prompt suggests good things, after many failed attempts to set a new password, it turns out you can ONLY use the special characters shown in the prompt

    No accessible version available.

  • 8 to 16 characters, at least one number and one letter and last but not least NO special characters, and can't have a password that looks like your username too. Oh, and passwords are NOT case sensitive. A real time travel adventure through the password rules of 2005!

  • Exactly eight characters.

  • 12 to 25 characters, only these special chars allowed: @+/'!#$^?:,.(){}[]~-. Also, security questions.

    • May only use the following characters: Aa-Zz 0-9 - _ . / \ @ $ * & ! #
    • No spaces
  • So many bad ideas: a low maximum length, requiring six specific character types while not accepting common symbols, plus a weird restriction that makes random generation harder.

  • Your password is too long. But how long can it be? Oh, we won't tell you.

  • Prevents spaces and a set list of characters, limits to 30 characters and can only change your password twice per day.

    • Can't use any special characters except ! # $ % + / = @ ~
    • Max length restriction (32 characters).
    • No runs of identical characters ("aaa") or sequential characters ("abc").
    • Password check is case-insensitive
  • Here are the (only fairly poor) rules for a new password. Enter 64 character password that matches all the rules (notice no rules on maximum length). That password you entered looks good! But we didn't change it. And your old password doesn't work. Or the new one. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  • A max of 12 characters... Can't handle most symbols (only 5 supported). At least they have two factor auth via email or sms sigh

    • Password is case-insensitive
    • Can't use ANY special characters (although, adding special characters increases the "password strength" meter?!)
    • Allows for a minimum password length of 6 characters
    • No runs of more than two identical characters (eg. "aaa" is not allowed.)
    • Does not allow you to paste passwords.
    • Password restricts quantity of characters "of same case", making correcthorsebatterystaple-style passwords problematic
    • No feedback for which rules are broken
    • Unlisted prohibited characters
  • The password should be of at least 8 characters and must include a number, special character, an upper as well as a lowercase letter

  • Password must be 9-30 characters with at least one upper case letter, one lower case letter, one number and one special character (no spaces) and be different than your username.

  • Only a staggering 8-12 characters allowed with prescribed selection of special characters.

  • Your password should be difficult to guess as long as it's not over 16 characters long.

  • Another financial institution with short password requirements. They also block pasting in to the field, making it a pain to use a password manager.

  • Copart: "The security of our members is extremely important to us." Also Copart: "We're gonna need you to keep your password between 5-10 characters."

  • Local Utility with a password restriction of 30 characters. Better than some for sure, but still dumb.

  • I wonder if they cooperate with NSA to enforce the password rules.

  • Due to Costco's short max password length of 16 characters, I strongly recommend using a password manager to make a random password to satisfy all of these conditions below:

    • Use between 8 and 16 characters
    • Include at least one lowercase (a-z) and one uppercase letter (A-Z)
    • Include at least one special character (e.g. !@#$&) - i.e., any symbol above the 0-9 keys)
    • Does not contain blank spaces or the following special characters: < > ,
    • Include at least one digit (0-9)

    For the record, at least Costco.com has greatly improved after the summer of 2021 - before that, the site used to prohibit copying and pasting passwords, which prevented password managers from working properly. I believe the max password length was also longer before the summer of 2021 (either 20 or 32 characters), but I cannot confirm this since I never took a screenshot.

  • Password has to be between 6 and 10 characters, can't contain any punctuation and you have to give characters from it on the phone to confirm identity.

  • Czech eshop


    • Max length is 20 characters
    • No special characters allowed (only alphanumeric)
  • Max password length is 15 characters

    The only special characters that can be used are !"#$%

  • Okay at least 6, that's alright I guess.

    Oh at least one number and one letter, bit dumb but hey not that dumb.

    But hiding the fact that it has a max of 20, now THAT is dumb!

  • Rules that are completely arbitrary that basically make all safe passwords wrong, instead forcing pseudo-safe password combinations.

  • It's a good thing they don't store personal information such as your passport number... oh wait.

  • Passwords for the online banking web frontend do not have a max length constraint, but using the same password to log in to the official iOS DKB app requires the password to be no longer than 38 characters.

  • Requires at least one symbol, but must be one of ! @ # $ % & * ?, and also has an unstated max length of 20 characters.

  • Silently (sic!) trim password to 30 symbols.

    That causes the stupid case when you could successfully registrate an account with password length of 52 and can't login with the password.

  • domainname.shop operates under several domains, domene.shop (Norway), domän.shop (Sweeden), domæne.shop (Denmark). The following characters are allowed: A-Z, a-z, 0-9 and + - * / ! ? . , : ; = # @ $ % & ( ) < >, password length 10-79 chars

  • At least 8 and at most 25 characters, of which at least 3 of the characters were not used in the previous password. No more than 3 of the same characters. At least 1 upper case and 4 lower case characters. No more than 3 special characters.

    It's not like hashing passwords is a thing or something.

  • Limits password length to a maximum of 16 characters

  • Portuguese power distribution company, which requires short passwords (10 to 15 characters), no repetition of the same character, not using the username, the word "PASS" or the word "SAP" in the password, and limiting which special characters can be used.

  • Causes:

    • Your two-factor authentication code must be appended to the end of the password
    • Passwords have a limit of 32 characters


    If your account has a 32-character password and has two-factor authentication, their system appears to cut off the token, making it impossible to login. You must reduce your password to 26 characters in order to login with a token.

  • Exactly 8 characters for password! There must be at least 1 lowercase letter, at least 1 uppercase letter, at least 1 number and at least 1 special char ( * , . $ # @ etc...).

  • Eight to sixteen characters, numeric digits only, not the same as the User ID.

    • Number of permutations: 1E+16

    • vs permutations for a 8-16 password using standard characters: 4E+31
    • vs permutations for the weakest length of 8 using standard characters: 7E+15
    • Other issues: allows and encourages the use of sequences like "12345678", SSN, DOB, today's date
    • At stake: last 4 digits of SSN, current and past addresses, and detailed work history of millions of Americans, down to how much their paycheck was in the third week of September 2007

  • Must be exactly 6 alphanumeric characters, does not show special characters are not allowed, username is your social security number (easily searchable) and the form is sent over plain HTTP. Did I mention this company applies college entrance exams for Computer Science nationwide in Brazil?

  • Password is 6-12 characters with no other restrictions. You can easily do 6 numbers, 6 lowercase letters, etc.

  • The new password can only have 6-12 characters. It may contain letters, numbers and a fixed set of special characters.

  • 12-63 characters One uppercase character One lowercase character One number Sufficiently Strong Special characters are optional. Double byte characters are not allowed

  • It might not be a web site, but that does not make it less dumb. Since many don't know about IBM mainframes, it seems they don't think you need to up the policies.

    Default old password policy is: 6-8 characters long, A-Z, 0-9

    Over the last few years they have updated their policies a bit, but due to many of their subsystems are incompatible, they can't enforce the new options for safer passwords.

They used to have "normal" passwords and they forced everybody to change to the 5 digits versions. They said they've made it "so it's easier for you" and it's OK, because everybody has 2FA.

  • Max 20 characters, must have one number, one upper case character and one lower case character. You can only use certain special characters. When i asked about it they answer that it's really hard to change it.

    • Avoid using basic character sequences such as "qwerty", "asdf", "1234" or "9876".

    Just in case, that's eight characters. Not seven, not nine. That's dumb and insecure enough... What they don't tell you is that the passwords are are actually not case sensitive.

  • Izly by Crous is an imposed French payment service for the university. You can't pay your daily meal without that because yeah you know cash is an ancient dumb thing.

    Your username is [email protected] or your phone number. We only allow you a fixed 6 numbers password. Oh yeah we also block your account after three failed attempts. How convenient when the only thing you need to know is the name of someone and where they study. How convenient indeed.

    Oh and also look we got pages NOT TRANSLATED IN FRENCH because duh.

    To make it more fun, during the registration, it allows to set a 24 characters password to login to their website. Once you try to login with the password, it will say that the maximum length accepted is 16 characters. What actually happens, is that they let you insert 24 characters during registration, but only the first 16 will get actually used as password.

  • What doesn't seem to be a problem for personal accounts, is for work accounts from Microsoft (e.g. Office 365 etc.).

    Maximum 16 characters. So forget about using your new fancy diceware password here - or really any secure passwords in general.

    Oh - and besides that, please don't use any "exotic" symbols, like ¤ or €. Or the letters Æ, Ø or Å from the Danish alphabet. They all are supposedly "spaces".

  • You "may use special characters", but only some of them - and we won't necessarily tell you which ones.

    • Password field length capped to 16 characters
  • 8 to 15 characters and no spaces? Why no spaces? Also limited to only these 6 special characters. That could mean that there is some process somewhere that puts this as part of a command line invocation.

  • When resetting your NetBank password, the website only informs you that you can create an alphanumeric password, despite the fact that you can use special characters. And also, it's password strength calculation is shit. An 155 bits of entropy password is "weak." Additionally, passwords are case-insensitive. This isn't the worst I've seen, but on a bank, it's just bad.

    Passwords must have one uppercase character.

    Passwords must have one number.

  • So many rules!

  • Passwords need to be between 8 and 15 characters.

  • The password rules itself is fine, but, it doesn't inform about the max length of the password. Their max length is 14 characters, so even if you enter a password of 42 chars, you can login with the first 14 of it. In this case, I changed my password to Super_l0ng_password_that_fits_all_criteria, and could login with Super_l0ng_pas

    Answer form SAS customer service:

    Hi, Thank you for your e-mail. Our website only takes 14 characters as a password, so somehow when you registered it took all 49. But since our website only asks for 14 characters anything after will be valid. I would advice you to change your password. Have a wonderful day.

  • Your password can not exceed a length of 30 characters. However, they don't tell you this: If you try to set a longer password, they instead shame you for not including at least one uppercase letter, one lowercase letter, one digit and one symbol – even if you did.

    The password must contain uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols.

  • „Sparkasse“ is a group of banks which is pretty popular in Germany. It calls its passwords „PIN“ („persönliche Identifikations-Nummer“ — personal identification number), the rules are pretty horrific and its not even a number, even though it is called as such!
