Optional Two Factor Authentication is now available...

Recommended Posts

I've been increasing security setting for the site to make sure it stays a safe place to visit. No threats have been seen but I want to be proactive to reduce the possibility in the future.

Part of that is adding two factor Authentication at log in.  For registered members it is optional.  It you decide to use it you will set up answers to a set of individual security questions that will  be prompted at login in.  If you have "Remember Me" set for login you will NOT be prompted for the questions.  While we actually store very little personal member information it is still a best practice to use two factor authentication as it helps not only protect your account but also the site from potential attacks. And after the initial set up it is a painless process, only needed if you are using new new devices or have totally logged out.   I strongly recommend you use it moving forward!  

 

Thank you,

To set up go to "Account Settings" under your user name in the upper right hand corner. 

Select "Settings", "Account Security" and either "Choose New Answers" to enable or "Disable this method" to skip.

On a more serious note, we are seeing very high "guest" activity which usually means an attack. At the time of this message we have nearly 650 "guests" trying to access the site. So just a reminder password security is very important.
