 I'm so fucking pissed right now that it isn't even funny. I want to rip Steam a new ass! This password shit is driving me in(fucking)sane! No matter what password I enter when creating an account, it always says "The password you entered is not allowed. Please select a different password, with at least 8 characters." What the fuck? Why do these fucking websites pull this goddamn shit?

I just read a post on steam forums where someone says that Steam doesn't clearly list all of the password requirements if you don't meet them. I would suggest you try including at least one capital and a number as well as meeting the 8 character limit.

Why do these fucking websites pull this goddamn shit?

Because it's the right thing to do.

Finally got it figured out, last night before going to bed. I was so enraged!

It can definitely be pretty irritating for sure.

Usually sites want 1 capital letter, one number. Some want a special character (such as @ or #).

It's done to make it harder for someone to brute-force hack your password, but it wouldn't really matter if the hacker got a list of passwords or got into the location where user passwords are stored (in some cases which in Yahoo's case get the password from some the pages' code).

On average, how often do you blow up when things frustrate you?

Steam doesn't clearly list all of the password requirements

That's probably international. Helps prevent hackers from brute forcing your account. Although, with 2-step verification it's probably not needed. Although, I imagine most people don't bother with 2-step verification unless they're forced to.

How is it a good idea to ask someone to make a password and not tell said person the requirements for making the password?

Your theory doesn't even make sense because someone just has to make a throwaway account to find out the requirements :P

As I found out, it is essential to actually type the password manually into the field. Copy/Paste is not allowed and leads to that error message!
