    I have a question about Bad Password attempts

    Does anyone know how many times you can try before it starts asking for the Birthday along with the PW? Also, does anyone know if it has anything to do with a certain amount of bad passwords attempted in a certain time frame?

    I think it's 3 or 5. Correct me if I'm wrong though. I think it's 3 or 5 guesses per hour.

    Thanks for the input!
    It'd be 5. I've tried 4 times on this accounts and it didn't get Bday locked. What I was really wondering was if in a certain amount of time, I could try a few more without it being Bday locked. Thanks for letting me know!

    I've had it ask for a bday after one bad attempt. And with that, the bday wasn't required to log in and it wasn't bday locked.
    idk if there is a set reason for them requiring the bday.
    But sometimes if I just click say, the neoboards, it will take me to the login screen and when I try again it won't ask for the bday.
    It's sporadic for me I guess.

    @Glaze
    You can set your account to request the birthday upon login, so it could ask after the first time, even if the password is correct. I also have always had it ask after the third time, but they were right in a row. I also think that you only have 5 tries for the day, so it'll tell you to come back tomorrow if it's wrong.

    Do you mean 5 tries per day and then it'll Birthday lock for the day? Or do you mean 5 bad password attempts in the day total?

    -EDIT-
    Also, when it starts asking for the Bday because of bad password attempts, will it always ask for the Bday after that? Or if I wait till tomorrow will it only ask for the PW again?

    Asking for the birthday isn't permanent . After an hour you may try again and it won't prompt you; at some the account will be flagged for so many bad password attempts, though.

    Ahh, okay. Thanks Reese!
    It just started asking me for the BDay. I had 4 bad passwords attempts and waited an hour in the hopes that it wouldn't BDay lock me on the 5th, but it did. I guess I should have just tried and then waited the hour
