Password Length: max 16 - make a warning when updating Vault

I just updated my credit card password with a 32 character password, which I thought was a great idea. It worked fine on the website, so I updated my Password Vault » fine no problem.
When I do OSU, I get an error! it then troubleshoots and asks me if I recently updated the password, I respond yes and ask Quicken to try again; Q automatically accesses the Vault and tries again » Success!! So I say: all is well!

Next OSU: same problem, over and over again! the password is correct in the Vault [but has 32 characters] » it works fine when the troubleshooter acessess the Vault and logs in!

BUT, big BUT, when OSU, acesses the Vault I believe the 16 character limit kicks in and there is an update error !!

Simple solution for all users: Quicken checks size of password when updating the Vault and advises user that he has gone over the 16 character limit!! simple! avoids many headaches...

Thank you!

    Good suggestion.  The recommended improvement would save a lot of Quicken customers' time and frustration.

    Or even better, let the Vault and OSU fully support longer passwords
