Don't worry!

Hejsa! Er du her fordi du modtog en notifikation om forsøg på at logge ind på din konto? Bare rolig! Din konto er stadig sikker.

Hvorfor fik jeg notifikationen/notifikationerne?

Du fik en notifikation fordi nogen prøvede (og fejlede) at logge ind på din bruger. If the login attempt was on a device or browser you haven't used before, then you got a notification after the first failed attempt. If it was on a known device or browser, then the notification was set off after five attempts.

Notifikationerne blev lavet af $LoginNotify, en feature der blev lanceret i 2017.

Please note that this feature relies on cookies to keep track of the devices you have used to log in. Deleting the cookies or using your browser's "incognito/private browsing" feature will cause the device to be regarded as new and, therefore, trigger the above notification as a "false positive" warning.

Hvad bør jeg gøre?

If you made this login attempt, no action needs to be taken at this time, though you should always have a strong and unique password for your account. If you don't think this is the case, you should change your password as soon as possible. According to one study of leaked account passwords, nearly 17% of 10 million internet user accounts have “123456” as their password.[1] Don't be one of them!

Vær ikke en af dem! Selv hvis du har et stærkt password, kan det stadig være en god ide at ændre password alligevel, hvis du mistænker der er en anden der har prøvet at få adgang til din konto.

Also, it might be a good idea to associate an email address with your account in the event you lose access to your account and want to get back in. You can set your email on the first panel of your Preferences page.

Hvordan fungerer denne funktion?

Failed login attempt notification on Echo

The extension keeps track of known browsers by placing an HTTP cookie in the browser. This cookie automatically expires in 180 days. If a failed login attempt happens from a new browser, it generates an Echo notification alerting the user about the login attempt. The other way that we identify known devices is by checking the current IP address subnet against the IP addresses that have been used recently (as stored in a temporary server cache). None of the information is stored in a database and at no point is any private information revealed publicly, including the attacker’s IP address/location. The WMF Legal and Security teams have reviewed the implementation for both compliances with our Privacy Policy and security considerations.

For known devices/IPs, we allow up to 5 login attempts before alerting the user about the login attempt, since it's fairly common to mistype or forget a password. If there are 5 or more failed attempts, the notification will say: "There have been 5 failed attempts to log in to your account since the last time you logged in. If it wasn't you, please make sure your account has a strong password." There would be another notification at 10 attempts, 15 attempts and so on.

For unknown devices/IPs, we alert on every failed attempt. The extension bundles these notifications to avoid spamming users with too many notifications. For example, if there are 3 failed attempts from an unknown device, there will be a single notification, which says: "There have been 3 failed attempts to log in to your account from a new device since the last time you logged in. If it wasn't you, please make sure your account has a strong password.".

Things to note

There are two ways for users to get these notifications – either by web Echo notifications or by email. By default, the web and email notifications are on for everyone. This is configurable in the notification preferences.

Successful logins

The extension allows you to get an email when a user logs in successfully to your account from an unfamiliar device and IP. This is especially helpful for admins or other functionaries who are concerned that their rights might be misused. This notification is on by default. Note that the web notifications are disabled for this feature. The email text says: "Someone (probably you) recently logged in to your account from a new device. If this was you, then you can disregard this message. If it wasn't you, then it's recommended that you change your password, and check your account activity." You can disable this in your preferences.

Hav et stærkt password

There is a lot of advice available online about making a strong password. Here is some general advice about passwords:

  • "Select strong passwords – eight or more characters long, and containing letters, digits, and punctuation". (Source: Security/Password reset on Meta). Know more about passwords and security.
  • "As a rule of thumb, a password that is reasonably long, with a mixture of upper and lowercase letters and numbers, and not mostly made up of dictionary words or names or personal information (date of birth, cat's name, etc.) is likely to be reasonably strong for everyday use. Passwords that consist of just lowercase letters can also be reasonably strong, but they must be significantly longer". (Source: User account security on English Wikipedia).
