    Exclamation Security Update: Password Expiry Dates


    EDIT: Disregard everything below. Sorry for the mix-up!

    Hello,

    Like the announcement says, we're starting a mandatory password refresh policy. Periodically, all registered members will be asked to change their passwords. You'll have to use a new one each time. As for the frequency of refreshes, we've tried to combine security with convenience.

    If you've never updated your password before on SEO Chat, you'll probably be asked to do so the next time you log in. After logging in, it will take you to a screen that says "You have not changed your password in X days. Please click here to change your password," or something like that. The words 'click here' will be a hyperlink to your user control panel - specifically, the part of it where you can change your password or email.

    If you try to navigate away from that page, it will show you the warning again and provide a link back to your control panel.

    If you have any questions, feel free to post below or email me at markr@imninjas.com.

    Thanks!

    I didn't need to change it either, I did need to enter the old one and used it for the new one, I think you might lose a lot of traffic doing this.
    we're starting a mandatory password refresh policy
    Why are you doing this?

    Argh, sorry folks. My mistake - I goofed. Misunderstood directions. Disregard this whole thing.

    If you need instructions for resetting your password (if you did change it) let me know and I can help on that end. Apologies for the inconvenience.
