Attention - 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

Thumbs up

Smart move! It is a good idea to change the passwords. With all the hackers out there, we need to keep on our toes!

Thanks, administrators.

David, and Bogie, the parrotlet.

Hi all, You might remember me as Amaranita. Since I lost Bigboy I have had nothing to post. But, I do come here often to read about your little ones. Recently I could not log on. No matter how I tried to reset and change my password I was not able to get back on. Therefore, I re-registered as Bigboy. I've lost all my stats (Not that there were that many, butů) But I am glad to be able to come and read. I have no idea why even when I followed all the directions, I still couldn't log in.

I had the same issue! It eventually resolved for me without my doing anything special other than trying a different web browser for the password reset.
