Complicated Password

I was recently advised by my online account to change my password.  Sure, okay, why not.  Then it asked me at least 10 characters with combinations of numerical values, lower and upper case alphabets.  What the F!!  Are they really serious about this?

They used to ask for at least 6 or 8 characters.  Now it is getting longer and complicated.  This is ridiculous.

I know there are hackers who wants to get access your personal or financial accounts but is this the new normal?  Are we going to keep on updating our passwords, lengthening it, making it complicated until we give up and say....bahala ka na and I don't care with my online account?
