MBNA security fails

Yesterday I received an email I firming me my statement was ready. Decided to leave it until today, and as usual used my tablet to sign in. Except I couldn’t.

Problem 1

Apparently existing passwords with punctuation will no longer work, and the site advised me to change my password.

Problem 2

The page would not load. Wonderful. Ok they have been pushing the use of their app of late I’ll try that, on my phone as it isn’t suitable for tablets. Install it, try to sign in, and it fails and sends me to the website…

Problem 3

This time though it takes me to a page for me to change my password. Without realising I actually enter a new password that is too long, BUT it accepts it!

Problem 4

Ask to reset your memorable word, what memorable word! Never used one before, so set one up, not one I can actually remember though, and included numbers in it.

Problem 5

New password did not work.

Problem 6

New password did not work

Problem 7

Calling support. Did not have my card ready, retrieved it before I get through to a human, at least I think she was human, didn’t catch her name.

Problem 8

Ask for me to do the process again, so I do.. same result.

Problem 9

Asks me to do it again but checks a few things along the way. I’ve been entering my password wrong, it’s too long. It’s been 17 characters for years, and now the max is 15. Were there any warnings or errors no of course not.

Problem 10

Apparently the password cannot contain Upper case characters. Yes they decided to add that restriction in without telling anyone. Not only that but it doesn’t appear in any error or indeed anywhere in the login process. So I had no chance getting passed this with my new password.

Conclusion

MBNA decided to change things without informing anyone, and didn’t create useful errors to help people resolve this. Passwords are now less secure, removing punctuation and upper case letters is just ridiculous. Memorable word, or phrase, or randomised letters and numbers (like mine) are now an extra hurdle. If I used an easy memorable phrase that yes it would be easier, but it would also be easy for others to figure it out as well.

    Is the vibrator fault? Nah, not at all. If you always get off from rubbing yourself up and down, it makes sense that trying to
    rub yourself left/right would be harder to orgasmIf you
    find yourself unable to orgasm without vibrations, the best way to “fix” it (if it a
    problem for you), is to slowly train your body back to orgasming from
    whatever method you interested in. The book I reading now,
    “I Love Female Orgasms”, talks more about this, but it completely normal to enjoy vibrational stimulation, and it won hurt your body at allI think “addicted” might be a bit of a
    strong of a word, but That Man from Mars is
    right.

    vibrators We mentioned hierarchical polyamory, and that’s a common approach; since people often come to
    polyamory by opening a previously established relationship,
    it can feel like a natural way to structure things at first.
    This might appeal to those who want to make sure an establishedrelationship stays strong and
    that other relationships are strictly casual or supplemental;
    there’s no guarantee that a hierarchical approach will achieve that, mind you, but many newcomers to polyamory make that assumption. While a hierarchical structure will prioritize
    the needs of a primary relationship and/or partner over
    the needs of a secondary one, it doesn’t give anyone the right to ignore the feelings, safety,
    or needs of a secondary partner entirely. vibrators

    vibrators One of the benefits of intimacy when it’s right for
    us is that it can afford us the very fantastic opportunity to be awkward to be human and have that be totally okay.
    Making out with someone isn’t the same thing as say,
    giving a public speech on television or interviewing for a job:
    the stakes are a LOT less high and the environment should
    be a lot more forgiving. I know sometimes it can feel like the stakes are just
    as high, especially when we’re new to it, when we imagine worst case scenarios,
    or when we really, really, really want someone
    to like us who we like, but the stakes with this stuff
    really shouldn’t be or feel that high. vibrators
