>(though admittedly it is probably too long to be a sensible password)

Agree this is a real problem, on my MS account, I have a password that is sensible and easy to enter on a normal keyboard. Entering it on an Xbox in the absence of a physical keyboard is another matter.

Likewise having a 16+ character key for the WiFi, can be fun to enter on some devices as it can overflow the display text box (which the developer forgot to enable horizontal scrolling on) and so you are entering characters without any screen feedback...
