We always want to strengthen our methods to offer the best in security and privacy for our users in the Swarm! With this in mind, starting with the Cubbit Hatch desktop version 7.4.0 we will be integrating stronger encryption for the user sign-in process, increasing our security even more!
What do I have to do?
Not much! You will just need to update (or configure) your password recovery phrase. With version 7.4.0, in order to adhere to the new standard, a notification will be sent to you that looks like the one below:
Clicking Configure will bring you to the web app, where you will be brought to your profile page. Click Privacy and then Edit under the Password recovery section.
Then you can update the password recovery phrase for your account. This is important also in the event you need to recover/reset your password in the future.
Note: After updating and signing into 7.4.0, you will no longer be able to log in using older versions of the application due to the change in security standard. You can read the technical information about the security protocol here.
