    Furry Hate (Mail)

    Okay, so not sure how to approach this or where to post this so I'll start off here. Attn mods, please edit/move or do what you feel is appropriate. I searched online and surprisingly I found very little on "Furry Hate", I'm not sure if it's a thing but I found a few references to it. A bit of...

    Main Site Https Support?

    Hi, I've been an avid FA user for a good amount of time, but I noticed that FA still uses http instead of https which has me a little worried for security's sake. Now I dont know if this was solved when the new layout was created since I do prefer the old layout, but I feel like this could be a...

    HTTPS by Default on FAF

    The Problem (TLDR Version) Unless you type in "https://" every time you visit FAF, or have HTTPS everywhere installed, everything you do on FAF, every bit of text you send, including your password, is plainly visible to anyone on the internet, possibly reading it over wifi, or through...

    Why doesn't this site use HSTS?

    HTTP Strict Transport Security is a basic precaution, without which it would be trivially easy to steal user information from this site. What's more, the Google result for "FA Forums" directs to the HTTP site. Without HSTS, anyone who then logs in without manually switching over to the HTTPS...

    Cloudflare and passwords

    From September to about a week ago, there was an exploit that allowed private information transmitted via the Cloudflare proxy service network to be seen by others, including login info. FA uses Cloudflare, so it might be a good idea for everyone to change their passwords, just in case they may...

    Increase security in furry breakrooms

    I suggest that someone to take it into their own hands to increase security in the furry breakrooms of all conventions and have hidden cameras installed without the knowledge of any of the fursuiters except for the fine print of the flyers and information pamphlets upon entering the convention...

    It's your fault if you failed to update your electronic mail.

    Disclaimer: Different opinions. This does not apply to you if you remember your information but the FA system refuses to send you a confirmation code. "But I made an accounts so people don't know I'm a furry or like porn!":oops: If you cared about your account you would have ensured that you...

    Just my own two bits on this issue...

    Just my own opinion on what has happened in FurAffinity recently... I looked through Google search, and saw that it wasn't just FurAffinity. YouTube, Facebook, Twitter... all sites, great and small, have some risk of being hacked, no matter how strong the security is. It's just one of the...

    It's Time for Real Account Security

    I'd like to see FA adopt two-factor authentication. If you're familiar with Battle.Net authenticator tokens, you know what I mean. If you use smartcard-and-PIN to log into computers at work, you do too. If you don't, I use Yubikeys to secure my accounts elsewhere. Unlike smartcards, Yubikeys...
