Today, I had one of the greatest nigtmares of which can face anybody who uses the internet on a regular basis.

A demand by Dynadot, to change my password before I could do anything that I urgently needed to do.

Cant there be a warning, say, in the month ahead, "Time to change password by the end of the month", so I could be given the chance to change the password in a more relaxing way.

Being "put on the spot" like that, is, dangerous, in many different ways.

#1, I really dont have any email accounts outside Dynadot of which I use on any regular basis.  I cant tell you how lucky I am, that I do have such, and, almost a freak chance, I did remember the password I had for that???  See how this would have "blocked me forever from Dynadot"

#2, Being put on the spot to change the password like that, poses such serious problems when it comes to, my ability to select a suitable password to have, and for me to remember that password too, when I may not have paper or other recording means by my side at that moment.

#3, Furthermore,  What if I had to access an email or other urgently, and, I had only a limited opportunity for me to do that urgent task.  Being put on the spot like this, can destroy my opportunity to do what I needed to do, just for the time it takes to mess around with getting a  new password like this.   I could have lost domain names I forgot to renew, or buy new ones I needed for a business, or, important other needs.


I will also say, why would we need to change our password on a regular basis anyway?

Unless a hacker was looking over my shoulder, or my e-shoulder as I type in a password, or if they hack your database containing my password, then how are they going to guess my old password any better than my new one?

I have had fairly simple passwords for 20 years, including for banking and other matters.  I have never had a problem, unless you count myself being blocked because I cant remember what is my Password right now.  Mind you, I am never silly enough to use words like Pass or code etc.
