Click board with button randomizer works wonders Very Happy. High Security sites use these very often, And I find that it works wonders as long as your password isn't easy to guess. ^_^  


Uh, still won't work. Key Logger screenshots everything you click. Well, the decent ones. If its randomized and you click one, its not hard to play the process of elimination. Takes a while but they can still guess.

Even if you blank the number/letter before you click you can guess which one it is.

I would also like to remind the community that not everyone that has their account compromised has it happen because they did something bad. They may have re-used a username/password combo, or simply used a bad password. Please have some sympathy for those that have this happen to them, as it is not a pleasant experience.  


Nice!

Also just wanted to mention in another game I have played, you have the choice once in game to have additional password lock on things like character and inventory. It is not compulsory but an option to use it.

Is this possibly something that Aeria may implement in the future? I know in various forms something along these lines has been suggested over the years in suggestions.

I'm not sure if it'd be a good thing. We had this in another game I used to play and people there would "discover" other people's ID (aka our forum name here in Aeria) and type anything on password 5 times just to lock that person's account for 30 min. So to me it would be more of a problem than a helpful tool.

why dont try like Facebook have. Like..

User created account from this **** and this area if someone logged in from out of the area then the security question comes up. If he failed auto report to the acc owner's email. SOmething like that will help from these scammers or whatever. Im sure that you can do it in PHPbb3. Just giving some ideas Smile

Do you mean if someone logs on with a different IP?
