Hi there -

 

I'm trying to update my password on my Dish acccount, and I am unable to use my password manager to paste from my clipboard.  Copying and pasting is disabled on the password and confirmation fields on https://my.dish.com/myaccount/myprofile 

 

There's no good reason we shouldn't be allowed to paste into a password field, it just forces us either to reuse a password that we keep in our brain or laboriously type random character strings into the field.  Curiously, the rules require strong passwords up to 128 characters length, which is basically impossible to actually do without pasting into that field. 

 

Please convince the PM that this is a bad feature Smiley Happy
