Is anyone else concerned that you can't use a password that has ever been used before, even if years ago? This means that Sprint stores your passwords forever. If they were ever hacked that's a lot worse than the situation with most banks, hospitals and other protected accounts that only hold on to the last 5 passwords.
this is the same way MANY companies do it..
I'm surprised to hear that. I have logins to my 401(k) administrator, bank, credit union, American Express account, 2 health systems, IRS, etc. - and all of them permit use of passwords as long as they aren't in roughly the last 5 passwords.
i have been with my company for the last 16 years and you can NOT use any password you have used within the last 5 changes...i literally have a list of PW i have used so i dont drive myself insane trying to remember what i have used or not used
Thanks for your reply. I too struggle with not using a previously used password. I'm not too challenged if I can't use the last 5. The Sprint situation makes life tough for me since I can't use anything I've ever used and I've been a customer for over 20 years. My password list could make for a book :).
dont even get me started on all my outside vendor passwords i must memorize and then re create every year..at least on their end it cant be one that i have used in that last 3 years..so my autobiography of passwords is slightly less for those ones lol
