Submission + - Microsoft No Longer Accepts Long Passwords, Shortens Them For You

An anonymous reader writes: Microsoft doesn’t like long passwords. In fact, the software giant not only won’t let you use a really long one in Hotmail, but the company recently started prompting users to only enter the first 16 characters of their password. Let me rephrase that: if you have a password that has more than 16 characters, it will no longer work. Microsoft is making your life easier! You no longer have to input your whole password! Just put in the first 16 characters!
