*Password Security*

As we start getting closer to the time when the frogs are gone from test center, and XP, crafting, and normal progression are on the horizon, it is important for us to address security. After conversations with a number of users, we want to make sure that people in the community have the knowledge of how to keep their accounts safe, not only their SWGEmu passwords, but passwords to everything they use. I am going to share a few links that I would advise everyone to glance at regarding how to make a secure password. I have been thinking about this issue for some time now, and have actually made it part of my senior project for college. If you would take a second to fill out a short survey designed to just make you think about your own passwords, you might be surprised at how insecure your password actually is. After the short 30 second survey, I have linked to 3 sites that really touch on the major points of the "how" in making a secure password. Click Here

P.S. Not only will this help you out with passwords, but it will greatly help my data collection for my school project!

Good I could use this, my old password used to be lolzcatz1337roflcoptersauce (not really, but you get the point) strangely enough somebody figured it out.

Get that A++

Done, iwould also like to provide a link to a site that makes "perfect" passwords GRC passwords

A tip when building a password is to make something that makes sence to you and no one else, sop don't make passwords that contain personal info.

best password around : 10 chars, mixing Upper/Lowercase, numbers AND ponctuation and specially NOT a L33teD word (don't trust me ? take a look @ the way john the ripper (a "popular" password cracker) generates the passes from a dictionnary...)

my 2 cents
