    I can ask our new General manager about it if you like? The password expiry setting was put in when these boards were set up, it's set at 720 days I believe, it's not something that's been put in recently and it's site-wide, not just our uo area.

    does it ask you when you log onto the website? Or does it send you an E-mail? Because I will NEVER click on a link in any e-mail that I did not request myself.

    it asks you when you log in. It's honestly nothing to worry about. Staff have to do it every 90 days.

    I wasn't worried, just making sure it didn't come as an e-mail, cause that would have been annoying ;)

    But thanks for the answer!
