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

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

I have set up a temporary id since I did not receive the email to reset my password and can no longer login to my account (userid abc123wife). I still have the same email I used to set up my account so that is not the issue. I have received notifications of PMs to that same email in the last few weeks. I have tried to use the "forgot password" twice and have not gotten an email that way either. How do I reset my password for my original account?

I don't know if you use Tapatalk or not, but I reset mine using the app. It surprised me when it worked.

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

Same problem here. Tried to request a password reset to my email, and no email came.

Unfortunately, I do not use Tapatalk. I was always logged in to the site on my ipad. Late yesterday afternoon or early evening it was no longer logged in. I had the userid and password saved on my ipad and when i hit login, it said my password was wrong. Tried manually entering it, still wrong. So at that point, i could not change my password since i was no longer logged in! Waited for the email to arrive and it has not arrived.

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

This is on an Android device.

Keep in mind that before I did this, it kept trying to load threads but was not able to, then it kicked me out of TAM and back to the home screen in the app, which has the "following" forums screen, which showed TAM.

I then tapped the "Talk About Marriage" button, and it asked for my login credentials.

When I entered the credentials, it did not allow access, but automatically brought me to a screen with a link that said "reset my password" or something similar. It was late. I was tired...lol

I tapped it, and entered the new password.

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

I wonder how many "new" users will have to be scrubbed after this debacle?

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

I'm in an iPhone and click on TAM and do not get a prompt to change password. I've asked 5 times to reset password on my Mac and only rec'd the link once- and it doesn't work.

Any ideas? I don't see how to change password on TapaTalk

Just did it the old email way and it worked just fine.

It finally worked for me as well. I never received the email indicated in the OP, and I did the whole reset password thing a couple of times last night and again this morning. Never received any response, until I tried it again about half an hour ago...so me thinks something was not responding on the back end, and finally cleared up...

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

The email account I use for Tam is one of 2 junk email accounts. The account for TAM is one I rarely ever check because I rarely ever use it or need it.

But I have another junk email account that I have used for other sites that required an email address and that email is the account that is associated with a user named Firewood. I am not firewood and I do not know who or how my junk email account #2 came to be associated with this Firewood person. I did a search on this Firewood person and it came back as invalid.

Now to further complicate this, that second junk email associated with Firewood sent me a notice stating my account had had an attempted log in from Chechnya which Google blocked. So I had to change the password for that email account.

So WTF?

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

Well due to my anti sarcasm vow I can't say what I want to say. I had to wait over 12 hours and apply for a rest at least twice. My guess is that the system was overwhelmed. I wondered what I had posted that I was permabanned without warning or explanation. But it doesn't beat Anon Pink's Story.

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

And now I can't remember my new password for TAM or for the junk email account that I had to reset because some dude in Chechnya tried to break in.... FVCK! I hate dealing with password resets!

So I'm afraid to log out of TAM because who the hell knows what will happen next!
