    Exclamation Password Security

    SACNR Admins will never ask for your password!!
    The admins have absolutely no reason to ask for it, and you have absolutely no reason to provide it.
    If anyone asks you for your login details, let a lead admin know or contact [email protected], but do not give away your password.



    Do not give your password to anyone!
    Your password is yours. keep it secure. Do not share it with people.
    Whatever happens to your account is your responsibility, no matter if it was you or someone else on your account.

    Use a proper password!
    Make sure your password is not easy to guess. "password123", "qwerty",your nickname or similar examples are not secure passwords!
    Some simple, generic guidelines for a secure password are
    - Having a password that is longer than 6 characters (HelloWorld)
    - A mix of upper- and lowercase letters (HeLLoWoRlD)
    - Using numbers in your password (H3ll0W0r7D)

    Do not:
    - use your username as password
    - pick a simple password that is easy to guess, like these http://i.imgur.com/rLulHYk.png
    - include info that is easy to obtain (your birthday etc)

    You could also use a password manager like LastPass to generate strong passwords and remember them for you.

    Avoid using the same password on multiple websites!
    So in case one of your passwords is compromised, you
    a) only have to worry about sorting out one account that might be accessed by someone else and
    b) don't have to go through the hassle of changing the password on every service you use, ever

    Again, if you have trouble remembering login details and multiple passwords, a password manager might be something you want to look into.


    This has been a PSA, thank you for your attention.

    Bumping this because I have to.

    DO NOT GIVE OUT YOUR PASSWORD TO PEOPLE!
    It doesn't matter if you were messaged by the Nigerian prince promising you wealth or a donator status or similar. No one needs your passwords for these things.
    Giving away your password so carelessly is an absolute waste of our time, having to go through logs and refund you stuff. And surely you too have better things to do than run after an account you gave away in the first place.

    DO.NOT.SHARE.YOUR.PASSWORD.

    cheers,

    Bumping this again...

    People, I cannot stress enough how important it is to keep your bloody account safe and secure.

    DO NOT give your password to anyone. This includes friends and family.
    Deal with situations yourself. Don't give away your account to people to check your appeals, or so they can access your cash while you're away for a bit.

    If you're given a password and access an account that is not yours, and something happens to it, whether or not it is your fault, you will most likely be suspicious, and probably be banned until the situation is sorted out.
    If a mate gives you their password, tell them to not be stupid, and to change it. Don't log into their accounts. You do not want to be held liable in case something happens.

    Stop wasting our time because you thought sharing your password is a good idea.
    If you feel like I've addressed you personally with this post, good. You bloody well should.

    Thanks,
    Pixel
