Make sure that your Lounge password is secure

Post by HansV »

Recently, several Loungers (including Admins) got this message:

"You exceeded the maximum allowed number of login attempts. In addition to your username and password you now also have to enter the confirm code from the image you see below."

Although we don't know for sure, it's possible that spammers are trying to log in using existing usernames, now that it has become far more difficult for them to register new usernames. We can't prevent the spammers from trying that, so if you have an easily guessed password, they might succeed. Make sure that your password is not something obvious and that it is not too short.
Regards,
Hans
