    Ouch that's not good for business. I've been using 2 Factor auth for quite a while now.

    Changing your password often doesn't help one bit if you choose a weak password every time. Password strength is key, and forcing users to choose new passwords every so often, as some companies do, begs users to choose weak passwords because they know they'll be forced to remember a new one soon.
