Attention - Password and Security Update

Hello 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

Something along those lines could work. You'll get all the details for the new complex password with the email reset.

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

I hate the forced password expirations.
I mean, I get you gotta do what you gotta do.
But even another forum I'm on, I've had the same password for years. Probably since I've been on that forum. And we hardly ever see and spam accounts.

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

they have locked a ton of people out of the Powerstroke Org by forced resetting of the passwords and not sending the temp password email

I hope this site doesn't get hosed as well

It all depends on how it is done.

All they need to do is to just do it on the site, no email needed. Just force everyone to change their password. I'm sure that there is a way to do it in the software.

What I hate is when it comes back that you can't reuse a password that has been used in the last 10 years. That along with one site requiring a special symbol or something else that another site won't accept.

I like to keep my passwords on these automotive sites simple and all of them have the same password. But when you have 30 or 40 different sites that require different logins and passwords it gets a little hectic with all of them.
