Sometime in the next month Find Gamers will upgrade it's password encryption methods.  We have not been hacked or had a security snafu.  Rather, it's a proactive measure to keep your account more secure.   It's not just us, a lot of websites are doing the same.  Honestly, it's just a smart move and helps to lock things up a little tighter.  The change should be fairly painless for our members.  

What You Need to Know: 

  • The update will invalidate everyone's current password including my own.  
  • You'll need to use Forgot Password? on the Sign In page.
  • There will be a notice on our front page afterwards pointing back to this news article.  It will be there for at least 30 days after the upgrade.
  • This news article will be updated to reflect the change.

Why are we doing this upgrade now?  It's because we're updating the coding language to make the site faster.  Faster and more secure sounds good right?
