    Awesome-Hd News : Security Changes

    To increase the secruity of the site we have made some changes to how logins work. The first one is transparent to the user and involves the hashing algorithm that your hashed password (we do NOT store your actual password) is stored with basically we have upgraded to a stronger password hashing algorithm. What do you as a user need to do to use this? Absolutely nothing outside of what you do normally i.e. login. When you login the hashed password is updated and stored for you automatically. So please logout of your account and log back in again to ensure that you are using the new hashing algorithm

    So the next one is a little more involved but makes your account much more secure, that is the use of two factor authentication via Google Authenticator. With this enabled you will be required to enter a code generated on your smart phone after entering a valid username and password to gain access to your account. To Enable this on your account go to your profile, scroll down to the Account Security section and tick the Enable Two Factor Authentication checkbox

    Then click the Save Profile button. Once the page refreshes you should see a QR code appear, scan this QR code with Google Authenticator and you should now have see a code in the Google Authenticator screen (If you do not scan the QR code into Google Authenticator you WILL be locked out of your account). Then when you try to login after entering the username and password you should see this screen

    Enter the current code that Google Authenticator has automatically generated for you and click Submit.

    You will not get help here mate. Visit their IRC and they might be able to help

    Thanks for the response, @masonos.
    I'm not well versed in IRC. Would you happen to know the channel name for Awesome-HD? PM me if that's more appropriate. Thanks!
