PIN Number added to Estore Accounts for Additional Security.


 Thanks to our WI Members for reporting an important change in security at the Estore. The Ganz Estore website has been asking for users to log in with their email address and passwords, on a new pop up window.  This new log in window often follows with a new request to add a 4 Digit Security Number.

These PIN numbers are added to provide an additional level of security on top of your password (but does not replace your password), and work much like a PIN number on a Bank/Debit card or Credit Card.  It is important that you do NOT make this PIN number the same as your Bank or Credit Card, as this is not a safe practice to use on the internet. It would be wise to use something unique to the account if possible.

Wow... Good change, but now I have to tell my little brother and sister my pin number??? They use my card on their estore accounts..... I see their logic but still....

Oh........... I get it now Nevermind what I said earlier It doesn't have to be my real pin number lol

Re: PIN Number added to Estore Accounts for Additional Security.

Yeah I saw this the other day...I wonder what happened for them to make it even more 'secure'?

Re: PIN Number added to Estore Accounts for Additional Security.

My life is filled with so many passwords!!!

Re: PIN Number added to Estore Accounts for Additional Security.

My mom took care of this yesterday BUT more stuff to remember! LOL! I already forgot the PIN! I guess it's a good thing but what is our PIN? Better go find mom.

Thanks for posting this, I know a number of us were worried when we saw it.

Re: PIN Number added to Estore Accounts for Additional Security.

I can't remember my password! The computer automatically saved it for me. ut oh.

Re: PIN Number added to Estore Accounts for Additional Security.

Wonder why they're doing this? Security problems? How many passwords etc are we supposed to remember? yikes.

Re: PIN Number added to Estore Accounts for Additional Security.

That is weird there using pin #'s. Maybe is the trouble with people getting on someone accounts and taking estore points. I saw someone in a trade room once selling estore points. So weird.............

Re: PIN Number added to Estore Accounts for Additional Security.

I agree so many passwords to remember! I wonder why they made this change. At least it will be a more secure site and we can make up our own number.

I'm all for it. If adding a pin # will make my account with them more secure then Yay. No reason to make it easy for hackers to get your info and money.

As to why they changed it. My guess is they got reports of peoples WW accounts getting hijacked and they had the same name and passwords on the Estore accounts so they got taken too.
