Que deberea io facer?
You should 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.
Don't be one of them! Even if you do have a strong password, you may want to change your password anyway, if you suspect that someone else has tried to access your account.
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.

Como functiona iste functionalitate?
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: "Ha occurrite 5 tentativas fallite de aperir session in tu conto depost le ultime vice que tu ha aperite session. Si tu non initiava isto, per favor assecura te que tu conto ha un contrasigno forte." 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: "Ha occurrite 3 tentativas fallite de aperir session in tu conto a partir de un nove apparato depost le ultime vice que tu ha aperite session. Si tu non initiava isto, per favor assecura te que tu conto ha un contrasigno forte.".
Cosas a notar
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.
Authenticationes con bon successo
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: "Alcuno (probabilemente tu) ha recentemente aperire session in tu conto a partir de un nove apparato. Si es tu, alora tu pote ignorar iste message. Si non es tu, alora es recommendate cambiar tu contrasigno e verificar le activitate de tu conto." You can disable this in your preferences.
Haber un contrasigno complexe
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).
