    It's hard to say because I think that it'll depend a lot on how you use your computer.
    Not to mention your computing habits.
    If you are a malware magnet, then I'd say you would probably need to do so regularly, along with a lot of other things.

    I haven't changed any of mine in a few years now. That's probably not something I would advocate.
    But I've had a stable setup based around the same apps and usability for quite some time now.

    Your original question appears to be written in a cipher, which CLiNT seems to have broken.

    Jag,

    Personally, I've been using the same PWs for years, only changing when required by sites like online banking sites. But then again I use RoboForm so all my PWs are long complex and no patterns and every site has its own PW! YMMV HTH

    Jag,

    I've been using it for years on all my machines and love it. I do NOT however use RoboForm Evereywhere (cloud version) for 2 reasons. I don't trust my passwords in the Cloud and I don't like paying every year for software! YMMV. The desktop version works just fine and I have SyncToy setup to keep my PWs in sync between my lapotop and desktop. HTH
