It’s amazing how banks seem to have less stringent security like this. Wells doesn’t even allow certain special characters in passwords which is stupid.


My WF p/w does contain one or more special characters. I also use their text based 2 factor authentication.

There are certain ones they don’t allow based on the last time I looked at their criteria. I keep really strong random passwords so I haven’t changed it in quite awhile. I agree they do have the 2 factor text based authentication though

The way I look at this is that it’s not good security to limit the potential number of unique values because it results in fewer combinations.
