Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

Finally!

It would have been helpful to have had better updates (especially today). I only found this thread last night when I tried to log in after being off for a few hours (my iPad won't let me stay logged in most of the time). I had no idea passwords were being reset. I emailed last night and didn't get a response. Then I read this morning about resetting my password -- which never occurred to me -- and life is back to normal.

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

I never received an email telling me about the password change. I came on this morning to find out that my old password no longer worked and followed the information to obtain a new email. Then I saw this thread.

If you can keep unique strong passwords straight, and change them often, without an app kudos.

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

This is "AT" Oldster replying.....thanks...I thought I got hacked...maybe by my wife or an Avatar from my home planet, Mars [4th planet from the Sun]. I thought they were on to me. After I outed Valerie Plame, I took a coveted Avatar from my Masters file and claim-jumped it [posting it on TAM].

I could not access my files. Please disregard my query to your Shadow-Refs.

IIRC 1password give you the option to store the data only on your devices. It makes syncing manual and therefore the whole thing less convenient but it is an option.



Sigh, my wife gives me the speaking treatment.

That may be true. It's been so long since I've configured it that I can't remember.

The downside, of course, is possible/likely data loss when the app is removed (and even if it's immediately reinstalled), and definite data loss if the device is factory reset.

Not sure if the data would be migrated when restoring from iTunes/iCloud-based backup, either.

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

Thank you Blue!

I'm finally in. Requested to change password due to me forgetting...

Did the contact us 3 times to no avail. No email sent...


Good things come to those who wait...greater things come to those who get off their a$$ and do anything to make it happen.

Anyone who used the same password for TAM and other sites should probably also change the password on those other sites.

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

I wonder how many TAMers think they've been banned.

I only thought this because I upset a poster by using a quote of theirs in a new thread I did just last night.... it was a little controversial.. maybe stirring the hornet's nest a bit on my end.. so I thought I was in the Dog house now --and "Oh dang.. I can't even log in to delete it !"

Though I didn't see "banned" below my name...but still went to bed thinking I might be ... so kinda a relief it was this going on instead.

Controversial, did you delete it once you got in?

I did think that. I make an effort to stay away from threads where I might be tempted to be snarky but last night I wondered if maybe I gave in to temptation on some thread after all.
