    Don't know if anyone has noticed this before or not; I searched Google with no results.

    I was typing a text message this morning and I fat fingered something badly and my AutoCorrect suggested my itunes password as a replacement!

    And it's not like my password is a regular word, its a combo of upper and lower case letters made up of the first letter of each word in a particular phrase (and a random phrase at that). It's not like its a regular acronym either, and the autocorrected word was capitalized just like my password.

    Definitely a bug and definitely a security issue no? Can anyone else confirm this or an I completely insane?

    Perhaps you typed it someplace that wasn't a password box. I have never had that happen to me, and I can't replicate it now. Weird.

    All I can suggest is to reset the dictionary. Settings > General > Reset > "Reset Keyboard Dictionary"

    You don't have you iTunes password saved in your contacts by any chance do you?
