IMPORTANT! Password Security
« on: December 17, 2007, 06:04:31 pm »

It is extremely important that you DO NOT use the same password on prosper.com as you do for other sites such as this one.

This is to protect your Prosper account in the case that this (or other) sites get compromised security.

In general you should never repeat passwords between sites.  It is easy to choose very strong pass phrases that are simple to remember but hard for others to guess.  Learn more at:

ETA: If you did use the same password, you should immediately change both, or at a minimum change your PMI password (since they are the ones that have your sensitive data)
