Security Notice - Your Passwords

Postby dB. » Wed Apr 20, 2016 9:19 am

Dear Members, Helpers & Admins,

Please ensure that your in-game & forum passwords are unique and are not used anywhere else (like any other server/forum). Your accounts are liable to get compromised otherwise. Also, please ensure that your passwords are not the common & easily guessable ones, (like 12345 or lol123, etc).

In addition to this, never share your passwords with anyone. Keep them to yourself.

If your password is being used elsewhere, or is a very common one or has been shared, its is strongly recommended to change them immediately.

Your Server Passwords can be changed in game using /changepass <new password>.

Your Forum passwords can be changed from your account settings.

All your passwords are secure hashed, and hence no one except you would know them.

Also another good idea would be to create a password that's complex, for example:

myname - not complex
mYNaMe - adding uppercase and lowercase improves the security of the password
MyNaMeisBoB - creating a longer password makes your password a lot more secure.
MyNaMeisBoB1483 - adding numbers to your password also improves the security
My-NaMeisBoB1483!#* - adding special characters such as " *&%£%$)!£(.,/ " etc improves the strength of your password.

High security password examples:
VolvicHateR3942!
TEaCUpLov3r987.
b33Risgr34T580*
Even improving your password from "simcard" to "Simcard79." improves the strength of your password incredibly.

Yea I agree with novi.

These Characters ( " *&%£%$)!£(.,/ " ) may really help making the passwords more secure .

Thanks dB. for the information .
And thanks Novi for the better ones :D


GoodLuck!
