No, you don't need to change it at all. I'm just saying, if a supercomputer were to start brute-forcing your password today, on average, it would take it almost 3 months.

Now if you change your password before then, on average, you will reset that period.

I understand.

It is that way for all users, including myself. The Microsoft sites simply do not support passwords over 16 characters.

In addition, even if you have a laptop, you should not leave it unattended. Use a random assortment of 12 numbers and letters, it will not be possible to figure it out in the short time that the computer is not in your possession.
