Attention - Password and Security Update

Hello all,

Over the next few days we will be implementing some changes to our forum password strength and password expiration policies. To make sure you continue having the best experience possible on the community, we regularly monitor the site and the Internet to keep everyone's account information safe. We've recently become aware of a potential risk to some accounts coming from outside of this community. Just to be safe, we are implementing the following changes to improve security even further:

1) We are asking everyone to change their passwords (and will force a one time reset). Along with every user on the forum, new passwords will need to be more complex, and can't be simple words (sorry, you can't have "fluffy" as your password anymore!). Please use a password unique to this community. Reusing passwords can expose your account indirectly when other websites (Twitter, Linkedin, Badoo, etc) are compromised; and

2) Your passwords will expire on a 365 day basis. When you login on the 366th day, you will have to change it.

We'll also be sending out an email to users to let them know about the changes, in upcoming weeks.

Thanks all,

Helena

Hello, for the last 2 months or so I have been trying to get on the BUSA site after having no trouble for about 7 years and suddenly I constantly get asked to verify my IP address and I do not know how to do this. I am fast becoming frustrated and am on the brink of cancelling my membership because of this problem. PLEASE WILL SOMEONE TELL ME (in simple terms) WHAT TO DO - ASAP? Thank you, peelbrow. kape0@aol.com

The great thing about science is that, unlike religion, it is true whether or not you believe in it.

Try to log in from different browser first. You shouldn't be asked for the IP address.

So if I change my password now, will I be forced to change it again in the next few days because of your one-time reset?
