Why your password can’t have symbols—or be longer than 16 characters

Another pain is when they have some javascript to disallow pasting of passwords. I guess they think forcing you to type it twice is more reliable? -_-

>:O Paypal does that when you’re creating a new password. I just used the Inspect Element feature in the browser and in the source code area, pasted in my new password in the value attribute. Thanks for trying, Paypal, but I use Keepass to store all my passwords. You’re only making it worse. ಠ_ಠ
