how not to do passwords #security

Some choice quotes from Fidelity’s website password policy:

  • Use 6 to 12 letters and/or numbers
  • Do not use symbols, punctuation marks, or spaces (e.g., #,@, /, *, -.)

Fidelity, really? 1999 called and it desperately wants it 12-character limit and no-symbols restriction back. Could expect better from a trading service.
