Put in your password....Arghhhh

Why do some selling sites make it so difficult to use them? Signing in , putting in your password should be an easy process but its often not. This morning yet again I've pulled out of ordering things because first my password was refused and then they told me that it had all been reinvented a month ago and new rules meant all sorts of information was needed.

I am told this is for our protection but it is at the price of our sanity!

I use the Internet a lot , living out in the country. I enjoy looking at all the wonderful things available these days....it's like being in an Aladins cave where new and exciting goods beckon you further into the interland.

Then it's time to pay.....putting in your Email address should surely be enough.....

Apple now seem to have realised that having to put in your password every time an app needs an update is a counter productive process. On my new mini iPad all I have to do is press the install button and off it goes. On the old iPad I have more than three hundred updates pending because the moment I put in my password it tells me it's wrong. Come on...try a little common sense guys!

Web sites like Amazon, Sainsburies , M and S have learned this lesson I think....some of the others have not so I have cancelled all the kitchen stuff from a specialist company and I will try one of the others....I am certain I can get what I want from one of the above. Then all I will have to do is recycle the packaging! But that's another long moan..... Sorry!
