Own Password of your choice

Well, We all have a Graal Online choosed password. and I don't like those passwords, I want an own password to enter, why would it be dangerous if you use your own, we have Account Protection on (: so why would we need a Graal Online choosed password

Account Protection isn't fullproof.

If they get your password they can get into your email if same password is used and afterwords can use your email when they log in to allow their computer through thus your account would be officially hijacked.

Randomly generated passwords is Graal's idea of security... even though nearly every other single website and game out there doesn't use that kind of security...

If people were able to choose and therefore be able to memorise their passwords less people would be losing access to their accounts and having no choice but to buy a new one, oh wait.

But if someone lost his email + his password of Graal and he didn't save the password, hmm what would be happened, you will lose ur account.

Own passwords you know what you typed in and most of the peoples (95%) remember their password, when i do Dont save password by accident, I have to go to my email and that will take ages, and hope ill find my password in the assoirtement of my email X_X

Aye, and once you have entered it enough times, it gets stuck in your head. I never thought I'd memorize it, but I did

Or you could just memorize you own password, the one you potentially use for everything anyway

In my experience with people that twisted Bell's or Ibonic's arm until they permitted them use of a custom password in the past (Something I refuse to allow, so don't ask), their account was compromised within weeks. Not pointing out anyone in particular, but I'm certain there are 3 people who are active forum users and will read this thread who I know this has happened to.

That is not to say that I'm against custom passwords, I am all for it if it is made a changeable service on the website, but I certainly do have concern with how much easier it is to guess someone's password based on "What would they typically think of?" and take advantage of that. In my opinion, the current passwords aren't even strong enough. They should include symbols mixed in with the mixed uppercase, lowercase & numerical sequence.

That then draws me to hope that if this ability to change your password were to be implemented, that it would be required to have a "Strong" password.

I don't understand why you're so unwilling to allow a custom password personally. If they change their password that's their decision, why wouldn't you let them?

If it's not a service provided by Graal (to choose custom passwords), then it's not a procedure that should be undertaken. And as I mentioned, I have my own concerns surrounding people being permitted their own password unless it is a function they can handle themselves through the website.

In short because the site doesn't provide the service themselves you hide behind that one factor. Gotcha'. But don't they provide it as long as you provide a transaction ID or did they remove that?

Perhaps you should read again. That's not all I said.

Pretty safe to assume so, at least within the last couple of years. Sounds like an Ibonic thing.
