There are two types of passwords on MUME: account passwords and character
passwords. Your account password is set from the account menu with the PASS
command, and is required each time you connect to MUME.
Characters may also have passwords, but this is not required. By default none of your characters will have passwords. If you do set a character password, you must enter this password as well as the account password each time you log in that character. To add a CHARACTER PASSWORD use the CHANGE PASSWORD command while logged into MUME with that character. You may have a different password for each character.
You can also remove character passwords with CHANGE PASSWORD: just press enter when prompted for the new password.
Be sure to choose a good password(s) that you can easily remember but, no less secure than you would for a "real" 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!
To change your account password, from the account menu type "password".
If you have LOST YOUR PASSWORD, you have to contact an Arata about the possibility of getting an account password reset.
Note: All passwords are CASE SENSITIVE.
MUME stores account and character passwords as MD5 message digests. However, if your character password was set before May 10, 2018, it is stored using DES (which is very insecure).
