Security: Not Quite Getting It

by Jens Alfke ⟿ July 13, 2009

I got an iPhone 3GS yesterday (yes, it totally rules.) While setting up online account access for billing, AT&T had me enter a password.

There was one of those colored password-strength meters next to the text field, and it said the password I entered was “weak”. Alright, I changed it to add some commas and dashes.

Then I hit Submit, and was told that passwords can only contain letters and digits.
