    I am getting tired of the App Store not taking my password. I have documentation I changed it in 2012 and want to keep the password I have. When you go in to the area that says "Are you having trouble remembering your password" they always want to change it. I do not want to change it.
    Any suggestions?

    It's always a good idea to change your password regularly.

    That's odd. I get a prompt from Apple every three months or so to change my password and can't make any purchases until it's complete.

    I believe it will let you bypass it and go right by it. I have not changed my ID ever for Apple or the store.

    It might be this...up until about a year ago, App Store passwords didn't have many requirements and then they made a small change where you must at the very least have one Capital letter. For some people it's never been an issue cause they already had.a Capital letter. So that may be your issue. If you have a password that is meaningful and use you don't want to change it, just change the first letter and Capitalize it.

    That's really oddmy password requirements from Apple are having upper and lower case characters, numbers, and symbols. And I have to change it every 3 months or so and I can't use any of the last 10 or so passwords. I wonder if it is related to having a dev account tied to the same AppleID?

    I'm not bothered about it really but find it interesting that most others don't seem to have it. I also have two-factor authentication on. Do you?
