Forumotion Admin Panel/account Security

Post by MrMario on November 30th 2008, 7:42 am

If there was someone trying to get in your account and Admin Panel and they failed to answer your Secret Question (3 times) The Account and Admin Panel Lock's done and sends a email to your email saying someone has attempted to get in your account and failed to answer your Questions therefore your account is locked till an Forumotions staff member looks at your account and makes sure your account is safe. Then we will give you a restart code.

What you think?

Its a good idea, a system being used by most of the online banking companies. I vote yes.

Facebook uses this and I think it is good. I had a problem with my account and they locked me out and made me restart my password and blocked the password they think someone was using.

Oh, i have not yet had to face this while using facebook. But, sometimes its annoying that you get locked. Though, Its better to be preventive rather than let someone use your account.

Yea, i thinkKnow this is 2nd best idea that iv seen in the time that iv been here!

As people say, better safe than sorry..and considering banks and face-book use it, why cant we?
We know its safe, reliable and good..why not use it?

well if someone did do that i would only want a warning sent to my email address and not to lock my forum O.o I probably suggest that the IP would be ban from the forum and it would be sent to the admin's email address. O.o

As what darren1 said only locks the Admin Panel out and sends an email to forumotion saying forum are risk or something like that. Then you will get an email saying please re- login and make a new password. Once you done that the password that you use before cant be used anymore. Will be Disabled to prevent this action again.

:wouhou: Maybe, the email letting u know that that has happened could happen over 2 emails.
One for letting you know and how to re-enable the admin panel.
and another with a verification link and verification code/image that you have to put in when u go to re-enable the admin account.
