CHANGE PASSWORD, PASSWORD
change passwordcommand, or from the account menu using the
passwordcommand. You need to enter it each time you connect to MUME.
Be sure to choose a good password that you can easily remember, but no less secure than you would for any other computer account. Don't use your character name, your real name, and in particular not a password you use somewhere else, in another MUD or for a computer account!
Note: all passwords are case sensitive.
Lost passwordIf you have lost your password, you have to contact an Arata about the possibility of having your password reset.
Technical detailsMUME stores passwords as SHA-256 hashes. However, if your character password was set before Jan 17, 2021, it is stored using MD5 (which is insecure). If set before May 10, 2018, it is stored using DES (which is very insecure).
Legacy character passwordsOld characters may have "character passwords" set. If you (successfully) log in a character, any character password it had will be automatically removed.
