Mixed case for passwords

I noticed that when I signed up I was not allowed to use upper case characters in my password.

This seems strange and causes a weakening in the security of the passwords (as it removes 26 possibilities for each character).

Any chance of implementing upper case characters in the passwords?

Mixed case for passwords

I agree with that. I also feel that the eight character limit is too small.

Considering the password allows access to personal and financial information it ought to be reasonably secure.
