This is an update on some changes made to our login system. From now on we are no longer storing usernames and passwords in cookies. This will all be managed on the server side.
This will allow us to run our server in a different configuration - even multiple servers for the domain if needed.
This also means that a new option was added to Profile Options. Clicking the "Logout from all browsers now" does exactly what it says. If you left a session open in a friend's place, or an Internet cafe, you can now logout remotely - this option will logout from all browsers, including the one you are using when clicking the link. But it's a very safe feature.
This will also allow us to move to a different development platform while co-existing with our current system. Users will be able to login to multiple services/domains on Geekzone with a single signon.
Also we do have a SSL certificate installed (actually for a couple of years now) and will enable an option for an encrypted login in the next week after we test the new system.
