@alvarezp @alcinnz While the topic of forcing password changes regularly is debatable, password history information is/should of course not just be stored in the clear. Only (hopefully well-salted) password hashes are stored.

New public facing service. My own instance of privacy oriented meta search engine searx.schleuss.online , read more about it here: asciimoo.github.io/searx/user/ - it may get restricted to German geo location shortly.
