It seems like every time I restart my computer, Adobe Creative Cloud asks me for my password, my social security number, and makes me sign a contract to hand over my first born if I need to reset my password.

I get that they want to keep my account secure, but how is it possible that they need to get my password EVERY time I restart?

Is it because I am running a VPN? Because I actively delete tracking cookies? It seems like a very aggressive means of ensuring the validity of an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription.

You used to be at least be able to use a program for 24 hours before you would get locked out. Now you can’t even access a program without putting in your password and producing a retinal scan.

Am I the only one this is happening to? Share your stories with me on Instagram or Twitter and tell me how Adobe Creative Cloud has been treating you!
