I can change my TP-link ID at https://www.tplinkcloud.com/admin.php, but if I change password using that link, I don't get logged out on this forum.

 

IMHO, this is terrible for security.  If somehow, my account's credential got leaked, I will have no way to lock the hacker out of this forum.

 

Also, this forum doesn't do 2FA, even if the TP-link account has 2FA on Tether app.  This is related to https://community.tp-link.com/en/home/forum/topic/597544

 

====================================

Here's an opinion of a PWM company of how password security should be implemented (from Bitwarden's Industry Leaders Security Rankings: Personal Email Services Edition).  TP-link isn't there yet, but perhaps should be there for being the first/second security barrier into the users' home networks.

 

Coming in hot with a perfect score is the wildly popular Gmail which brings it home in every category. Password pasting? Check. 2FA? Check. Authenticator hardware? Check. When it comes to password security, the folks over in Mountain View are doing something right. 

Password Security: Good

✅ Allows passwords that are ≥ 40 characters

✅ Allows users to paste passwords 

✅ Offers two-factor authentication

Allows authenticator apps 

Allows authenticator hardware 

✅ Informs users of password reset 

Requires login using new password

PASSWORD SECURITY SCORE: 100%

Hello @tikmok 

 

Thank you very much for bringing this up to our attention.

 

We have reported this concern to the related department, and they will check and confirm how to improve the system management with the highest priority.

 

Kind reminder: when creating a password for any account, do remember to create a Strong Password with a mix of numbers, letters, capitals, which is long enough but with unique meaning, that will help protect the account security as well as remember it. You can read this story to understand more about it. Also, Do NOT reuse the same password across multiple platforms, which would increase the risk to make your account's credential get leaked if one specific platform gets hacked.

 

We will also consider if there is a possibility to support 2FA on the community and forum.
