Oh that's cool. This will decrease topics about "Forget password" or spamming.

I'm thankful for those who said "no" to me. Because of them I'm doing it myself.

Also, keep these in mind before it's too late:

Tips for creating strong passwords:

Passwords provide the first line of defense against unauthorized access to your accounts. The stronger your password(s), the more protected your accounts will be from hackers and malicious software. You should make sure you have strong passwords for all accounts of yours.

What makes a password strong:
A strong password:
• Does not contain a complete word.
• Does not contain your user name, real name, or such.
• Is significantly different from previous passwords.
• Contains characters from each of the following four categories:

Characther category      Examples

Uppercase      letters:      A, B, C

Lowercase      letters:      a, b, c

N  u   m   b   e   r   s:      0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

S  y  m    b   o   l   s:       ` ~ ! @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) _ - + = { } [ ] \ | : ; " ' < > , . ? /
 

Your password might meet all the criteria above and still be a weak password. For example, Hello2U! meets all the criteria for a strong password listed above, but is still weak because it contains a complete word. H3ll0 2 U! is a stronger alternative because it replaces some of the letters in the complete word with numbers and also includes spaces.

Help yourself remember your strong password by following these tips:

• Create an acronym from an easy-to-remember piece of information. For example, pick a phrase that is meaningful to you, such as My son's birthday is 12 December, 2004. Using that phrase as your guide, you might use Msbi12/Dec,4 for your password.

• Substitute numbers, symbols, and misspellings for letters or words in an easy-to-remember phrase. For example, My son's birthday is 12 December, 2004 could become Mi$un's Brthd8iz 12124 (it's OK to use spaces in your password).

• Relate your password to a favorite hobby or sport. For example, I love to play badminton could become [email protected]()n.


Tips for securing your passwords:

Passwords are the first line of defence against cyber criminals. It’s crucial to pick strong passwords that are different for each of your important accounts and it is good practice to update your passwords regularly. Follow these tips to create strong passwords and keep them secure.

Choosing the same password for each of your online accounts is like using the same key to lock your home, car and office - if a criminal gains access to one, all of them are compromised. So don’t use the same password for another forum as you do for your in-game account or UIF forums account of yours. It may be less convenient, but picking multiple passwords keeps you safer.

Writing down your passwords isn't necessarily a bad idea. But if you do this, don’t leave notes with your passwords in plain sight on your computer or desk.

The longer that your password is, the harder it is to guess. So make your password long to help keep your information safe. Adding numbers, symbols and mixed-case letters makes it harder for would-be snoops or others to guess or crack your password. Don’t use ‘123456’ or ‘password’ and avoid using publicly available information like your phone number in your passwords.

One idea is to think of a phrase that only you know and make it be related to a particular website to help you remember it. For your forum account, you could start with “My friends Tom and Jasmine send me a funny email once a day” and then use numbers and letters to recreate it. “MfT&Jsmafe1ad” is a password with lots of variations.
