Default PIN Number added to Estore Accounts for Additional Security.

A new front page story has been added:

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.

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.............

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.
