    I am new to this site and I do not know if it was ever suggested in the past.

    At the least, is it possible to set a secure HTTPS login to protect players from being hacked.

    I know most chess players are honest but I would not be happy if my account was hacked and somebody put me on terrilble slide.

    Dont hav to get a full blown SSL but just seting the login to a secure part of the server should not be that difficult of a mod.

    i've been here for 5 years and have never heard of anyone getting their account hacked. log off in public places, clear cache and you'll be fine.

    HTTPS won't protect your account from a hacker. It will protect your credentials from being intercepted as they are sent over the Internet but it can't do anything about a brute-force/well-guessed password crack if someone already knows your email address.

    Did you have a nightmare that you logged into RHP and the cast of The Matrix had logged into your account and resigned all your games?
