In the past few days we have seen users raising concerns about the security on the site, and we would like to address those concerns here.
One concern is an assumption made by these users is that we store passwords un-encrypted. This is not true. Passwords are not stored in plain-text in either databases, backups or logs. Our systems have the capability to decrypt passwords for temporary use in services such as password recovery, or to ensure that they aren't shared.
Another concern is password case-insensitivity. This has been the standard for goSupermodel for most of its lifetime, for the sake of convenience. We agree that this is not ideal, and will change it in the near future. We therefore encourage you to make sure that you remember the correct casing for your password.
Finally, about using a different password on goSupermodel; You should. In fact, it would be prudent to use a different password on all services you use. It does happen from time to time that even big services have data leaks. By using different passwords, you can minimize the risk of others gaining access to your online accounts and services.
Stay safe, and enjoy goSupermodel!
The goSupermodel team
