My iCloud Password

After reading about the hacker group that claims to have a huge file of iCloud account credentials, I went ahead and changed my password. I realize that these guys probably don’t have my password, but you can’t be too careful. I hadn’t changed my password in a couple of years, so I was due anyway.

Apple’s password complexity requirements aren’t quite as bad as this comic indicates, but it can be hard to come up with a good iCloud password, when you remember that you’ll need to type it in with some frequency on multiple devices without physical keyboards.

In my case, after changing my password two days ago, I’ve had to enter it three times on my iPhone, three times on my iPad, twice on my Mac, and twice on my Apple TV. There really ought to be a way to cut down on that.
