Why is password max 50 characters?

When creating a new relic account it has a max of 50 characters in the password. Why?

I normally assume that means that password is stored in clear text somewhere rather than as a hash. It makes no sense.

Hi @rickard, Welcome to the community!

Just to clarify, passwords are not stored in plaintext and I would be happy to file a feature request to increase the character limit if you like? Please keep in mind that there is no guarantee that this will definitely be implemented.
