Faster password recovery procedure

Post by Guest on April 27th 2009, 8:47 am

I think we should have a faster password recovery procedure. What I mean is basically, all we should have to do if have a secret question.

E.g. I might own a bunny forum (I don't by the way). So I will have a faster password reset. Have a look at this draft:

Select the question you chose during registration: ...........................
Answer: .....................
Email: ..........................................................................

Submit query

Then it comes up with your new password and then it advises you to change it. Wink So vote now!

NO

That's only about 60% less safer! (I think 60% could be more)

I rather have the security of having trust-able members of this forum (being staff members) is far more safer than just, easy peasy email account's.

Do you know how easy it is to get someones password for their email accounts these days?

Exactly. Then they can change their passwords and crap. You will have a secret question that you tell no-one the answer to.

So, I get the rights to say "Ownage"

Hm, I am not sure. The only problem with that is hackers.

I don't want this, sorry. I think it is more safer in the hands of the Forumotion staff to reset your forums password.

Oh, so you're better than vBulletin? Ha. However, it could be an Optional setting.
