Today's password reset.

Following todays "Security issue", Will I have to reset my password on other sites that may share the same password? Aka, had our passwords been compromised?

Cheers,

On the same issue. This is a free to join forum not a banking site or something related to national security so why do we have to have a minimum of 10 characters including letters, numbers and symbols . Who's getting

Hey there,

You do not NEED to change your other passwords, but I would recommend it if you are one to be paranoid about the internet haha.

Honestly, we are being very aggressive about these security changes, just to protect members who use similar password in other networks.

If you guys have any other questions/comment/concerns about these issues please let us know.

Richard.

I'll bet lost of users on here use the same passwords for loads of other sites including banking personal emails etc.

It's not hard to change it, just took me 2 mins. I've securely saved it on another device.

I think the change is about protecting your other 'more sensitive' sites that use same password as this one.

Makes loads of sense to me - for once congrats Alfaowner admin team - and guess what it takes time and effort to implement this sort of thing.

I understand it's one of their third party partner technology providers that have been breached, not vertical scope.
