May have just found out why I’ve historically had issues logging into my Lemmy accounts.

I was able to create my account fine using a password 65-ish characters in length using letters, numbers and special characters. Then immediately I couldn’t login! I use a passwords vault to create/save my accounts fully before I enter my details into the site so the details are correct.

Upon resetting my password and trying a new one with the same parameters I was advised my password was too long (60 max I think it said?). I moved it to 58 characters and also removed special characters then I was able to login fine.

This may have been going on for sometime and across other instances because I was having lots of issues making lemmy accounts before on

Anyone else run into this?
