Lockout Time

So after you fail to get your password correct multiple times in a row, you'll be locked out of any account for a hour. I find this extremely frustrating because 1 hour is a pretty long time to wait. It's even worse when you have people who lock out your account intentionally to either irk you or on accident. Can we lower the lockout time by a significant amount of time, and put in a new system where the lockout time gets consistently longer the more we fail? Like the iPhone lockout?

    How about it just locks the device out for a hour instead of the account?

    Ehh, it works, but not something I would prefer.

    You can bypass this, in case you didn't know. I have two passwords for two of my accounts, and I switch back quickly, but sometimes I mess that up, and I get locked out. I'd rather not say how to bypass this, because it might cause problems, and then I'll be the source.

    I do think it should be lowered though, similar to how an iPhone works. But we have to ask ourselves: "Is this really the biggest problem right now?" I don't think so, but maybe in the distant future it could be changed. :P

    Ehhh, there's a bypass? Oh well, my lockout time is almost done. But I do hope changes come, if not never.

    I dont understand why you’re having a problem. Doesn’t your device remember your password?

    No Shaanti , Some people dont want to set their device to not remembering it.

    I kind of mentioned this in the OP, but sometimes people lock your account on purpose.
