Hi, what to do if a site forces me to renew my password in regular intervals?
Thanks

    Hi!

    I'll be evaluating this at an algorithm level under our Spectre project, you can track progress here:

    In the mean time, you'll need to manually increment the password's counter each time you want/need to renew the password. Some passwords will allow you to cycle the password counter between 0 and 1, but some sites will detect "previously used passwords" and reject them, forcing you to keep incrementing the counter.
