    DefaultAttention - Password and Security Update

    Hey all,

    Over the next few days we will be implementing some changes to our forum password strength and password expiration policies. To make sure you continue having the best experience possible on the community, we regularly monitor the site and the Internet to keep everyone's account information safe. We've recently become aware of a potential risk to some accounts coming from outside of this community. Just to be safe, we are implementing the following changes to improve security even further:

    1) We are asking everyone to change their passwords (and will force a one time reset). Along with every user on the forum, new passwords will need to be more complex, and can't be simple words (sorry, you can't have "fluffy" as your password anymore!). Please use a password unique to this community. Reusing passwords can expose your account indirectly when other websites (Twitter, Linkedin, Badoo, etc) are compromised; and

    2) Your passwords will expire on a 365 day basis. When you login on the 366th day, you will have to change it.

    We'll also be sending out an email to users to let them know about the changes, in upcoming weeks.

    Thanks all,

    Helena

    Copy and paste the new password. Then go to "edit email and/or password" and redo to a new password using all the features it requires, ie. numbers, symbols, 10+ characters. The one sent by email is computer generated and not intended as your final password choice, I believe.

    While I might have worded it a bit more diplomatically, I must say that I agree with the sentiment. This is BCAquaria for goodness sake, not a financial institution. Those who want top secret security with umpteen letters, upper case, lowercase, numbers, letters, and additional characters can still have that. But perhaps let those who want simple passwords to keep them simple. The present format seems like a bit of overkill.

    It's way overkill. I seriously doubt I'll be able to remember my new one next time I log in.
