Nextcloud 14 - password expiration on admin task is too fast

[details=“Support intro”]

Sorry to hear you’re facing problems :slightly_frowning_face:

Hi: Not so much a bug as an observation. I have been playing with NC14 (not yet ready to upgrade our production server). I have noticed that when doing tasks that require admin password re-entry (say, adding a new security code), the app doesn’t always give me enough time before it says I am being too slow at entering my password. Is there a new time limit feature here, and if so, can it be toned-down a little? I was seeing this message in about 10-15 seconds. I had to really focus to enter my password quickly enough to not get kicked back. If someone has an even more complex password than mine (16 characters…:slight_smile: ) then they might never get their credentials in in-time, and thus might get locked out for the wrong reason.

So not a bug…just an observation.

Agreed, as I noted in my own thread.
The timeout is crazy short!
