Signing In

Postby Anura » 21 Jan 2011, 12:33pm

A few weeks ago I signed in giving another username by mistake. A couple of times later I put the correct details in to log in and then a message came up telling me I had exceeded number of tries. I had only entered my correct username and password on that occasion, so why should this message come up now every time I log in? It's getting a bit tedious, and the letters are a bit like those used for colour blindness as well, not at all easy to read.

Have a read here.

There's little choice but to make sure you've got a secure password and put up with the inconvenience. :|

You can tick a box that says "log me in whenever I visit", or something. Then you'll only need to login when your browser crashes (and then you'll have problems remembering your password, of course).

Obviously, this is a security risk, and you shouldn't do this on a shared computer.
