Hi guys,

Just noticed that when I enter my login username and password from the Travelpod page, the blue bar at top of the window displays my password for all to see while it's loading up.

Not the end of the world of course (as long as I'm not sitting next to someone who's feeling particularly destructive and bored huh.gif)

Could you have a look?

Cheers

Hi Scott,

Thanks for the good catch, this is a potential security problem for sure. I have updated the login mechanism such that it does not pass the password in plain sight, it's done more securely behind the scenes. Thanks again.

Cheers,
Shaun

Thanks again Shaun, that was a potentially worrying one. All good! thumbsup.png
