Today near the end of my shift, I tried logging into WB several times using my password and it kept saying I was getting it wrong. After my account got locked from too many attempts, I called the CSC to get it unlocked and receive a temporary password. After getting successfully logged in and attempting to change my password, I was told I needed to have a special character (like a punctuation mark or similar) in order for it to be a valid password.

That policy must have just taken effect; did anyone else run into password problems today?

What! Am I crazy then? I could swear my last password was just numbers and letters until I had to change it today @_@

I've been with Target for over 9 months and I always had to have a special character in it.

That started last year. To avoid lockout, try 2 times & exit the screen. 3 times in a row will lock you out.

Sometimes I change computers and it lets me in after lockout. Fun times.
