Ditch the Label Staff Harper Posted May 9 Ditch the Label Staff Share Posted May 9 Hi! Over the coming months, we will be disabling the option to login with your account username. Instead, you will be able to login with your registered email address and password only. Why? Your username is publicly viewable, which means that in theory, somebody could either guess or brute force your password to gain access to your account. Whilst this is unlikely and there is no evidence of this happening, we want to ensure that your account security is at the highest possible standard. What do I need to do? Just ensure that your email address is up-to-date and that you still have access to your email account. If you need to update your email, or make a record of the email address associated with your account, do so now. We will send you an email/DM notification closer to the time, but it makes good sense to be on top of your account security now. When we disable username login, we will provide ample notice and you will receive a message from us. This is likely to be by the end of summer. If you'd like to get ahead of this change - you can logout and then log back in using your email address and password - if you're on a personal computer and use a password manager, you may choose to save the new login into your keychain. Is this optional? No, username login will be disabled for all members. You are able to set up 2FA in your security settings which will add an additional and optional level of security to your account access. When will this happen? This change is being implemented by the developers of the platform that we use and is completely beyond our control. It will be rolled out in a future version of our platform, most likely towards the end of the year. We may bring this change forward just to allow a window of time to fix any individual issues with account access, but most certainly won't be within the next few months. Thanks, Harper 1 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
