Dear Thingspeak Community administrators,

I have just signed up for the forum and could not believe that the login credentials are not protected in any way. Even the password is being transmitted in complete clear text.

Is this really necessary these days? Personally, I know better than to reuse passwords for different services, but still... Frown

So, I kindly ask you to either switch the whole server to TLS/SSL or, if you are concerned about the additional load, at least protect the login process including password reset, etc.

 

Best regards,

Kilian
