Mandatory password reset - terrible idea for API users!

I just found out about this mandatory password reset policy.  It is a terrible idea for customers that have automated uploads or downloads using the API because the password used by the API needs to be syncronized with a periodic manual reset.  That is a major hassle.  Also, this new policy wasn't communicated to customers, which resulted in well-established processes breaking.  I strongly urge you to prove an opt-out of this policy for certain accounts, otherwise your API basically becomes useless and I have to migrate to a different service that caters to API users.

I agree with this - it is going to be an absolute nightmare every time they force a change if the effect of this weekend's mass reset is anything to go by.

They did not announce how often this reset will take place too. What makes it even more terrible

I agree- You have to go thru at least 5 minutes of screens to prove you are not a robot.  When I go in and manually change their password for them - it still does not recognize that they are a legit user!  Very Frustrating!!
