    New Security Measure?

    Just curious if anyone else has gotten this?

    On an account of mine when I logged in I got a message saying that my email UN was the same as my neopets UN and that it might be wise to change it. Is this normal or something new? I've never seen it before.

    Hey well thats a neopets autmomated message meaning that they use that in order to prevent purgiing .
    The neopets username should be different from the attached email.

    Concur - I see it on a lot of unregs, along with the "your password is not secure enough" message.

    It's not a security measure to prevent purge... Lol

    But it's nothing major to worry about.
    You might run into that one, then one that asks you to change you password because its not up to the current password requirements. You don't have to change it, it will just keep popping up when you log in.. But feel free to ignore it

    &@TreesNut ~ Stop asking for rep or ill give you some, and it won't be of the positive variety
