At least once a week for the past several weeks I have been locked out of my email with a warning that due to a "review" of my account, Xfinity is forcing me to reset my password. This seems fishy to me. Has this happened to anyone else and is there any way I can stop it short of deleting my Comcast email account, which I don't want to do?
Solved! Go to Solution.
How are you getting this warning? In the form of an email? Or a pop-up or something? Exactly what happens when you try to sign in?
It’s a page that shows up when I try to sign in to webmail.
I would call Comcast security and ask them to look at your account. It could be a phishing attempt.

I was locked out on my primary account and a secondary account.
For both accounts, I was told I needed to reset my password.
When I asked WHY I needed to change these passwords I was told that "As I have checked there are multiple wrong attempts to get access of the account and to protect the account your account was locked."
When I asked if someone had SUCCESSFULLY accessed my accounts I was told "They haven't. However there were attempts to do so ."
It is NOT a phishing attempt. It is Xfinity forcing me to reset my password every couple of weeks. If this is a new system policy, they need to stop it. I am sick and tired of being forced to change my password every other week for no reason!
having same problem here.
here my post with pic and comcast reply.
did anyone ever got a email from yourself before this happen
Having the same issue as well. Started about a month ago. Now 2 times a week I'm having to change my password. Has anyione had any success in overcoming this issue? Needless to say calling this frustrating is an understatement.
xfinity please help!
We have made some changes on the back end which went effective immediately and should resolve this issue. Please PM me directly if you continue to have issues after 2/26/2020.
GLAD to hear that even Xfinity can admit there is a problem with it's policies and resolve issues like this, assuming the changes (which you weren't specific about AT ALL) actually resolves things.
I assume that the changes that were made on your back end was the elimination of forced password resets when someone TRIED BUT FAILED to log in to customer accounts which was a VERY STUPID POLICY.
@mholms1221 i've sent you a PM
