Like too many times, today my Apple ID password is not recognized. Does anyone else experience this from time to time?

Oh HELL yes. My P/W is up around 24 digits because Apple occasionally decides it doesn't like what I've typed in (even though I'm SURE I've typed it in correctly). I'm sick and tired of how Apple "quality" and ease of use has gone down the toilet. angry villagers smiley

I hear this occassionally. Never had it happen to me that I could prove was not a mistype.

Next time you can't log in, type your AppleID and password into TextEdit and cut and paste the items into the prompt and see what happens. That is the only way you can be sure that you didn't mistype something,

I'd love to see some video proof to substantiate the claims.

Also, if you type it in wrong enough times Apple will lock out the account, but it won't tell you it is locked out, it just keeps saying bad password. So someone with a similar ID or a hacker could be locking your account.

Is that even possible with modern Mac OSs?

I've done that with Mavs or earlier, and had the problem, and sometimes if I've changed my Apple ID password in that last few days.

And don't get me started on AMZ pulling that crap. I type my password, and AMZ says it's wrong. I no it isn't. Rinse, repeat, no joy.

Then I notice I Have Mail. It's AMZ saying 'occasional, depending on your new device/location, or item ordered, or for no fsckin reason, we'll need a second authorization, just to keep your life from running smoothly in regular intervals. We've sent you a temporary password in email.

And hilarity ensues.

Hey, I said don't get me started!
