If you've logged in to Guild Wars 2
lately and have seen a bright red banner at the top of your launcher suggesting that you change your password, your time is almost up. On February 7, 2013, all players who haven't changed their password since September 12, 2013 will need to choose a new password before playing the game.
Interestingly enough, ArenaNet
has compiled a blacklist of passwords
that have been exploited by hackers in the past, so you might be out of luck trying to use "12345" or "password" or even "massivelyisawesome."
Head on over to the account management site
to change your password today.
