- We’d like to suggest that CCP look at improving Account Security for Eve online players:
First option is to present a log of timestamps, IP's and login attempts through the account management pages. This is very basic and will allow us to regularly see if there has been any attempts, successful or not on our accounts. Lots of fails might indicate someone is trying to hack our account, and we can change password in order to make it a bit harder to gain access.

Second option is to allow us to lock our accounts down based on IP-addresses. Single, range, and masked IP's. Very effective, though a little more complex in deployment; yes this will cause trouble when someone activates it and then later maybe needs to log on from somewhere else, or their IP changes. So basically this is for people with static or semi-static ranges.

Third option is to have a password “strength” bar when entering a password. (displays Weak > Medium > Strong) dynamically as people enter the password? Then people can make a conscious decision if "snoopy" is fine, or they really do want to have "AHJ4tinS^Foil%S$^*@€Hat!3_47SJ" as their password.
