Change Your Password
I have been asked to bring you a notice regarding changing your Aion game password some time before release. We have made adjustments to our password system and anyone who has an outdated password once release/headstart arrives, will be unable to log in to the game.
This message applies only to those of you who created your Aion account before 07/29/2009. If you changed your password or created your Aion game account after this date, you are fine and will not need to make any adjustments.
Our password system update will not affect beta access, but the password you are currently using in beta for any Aion accounts created on or before this date will no longer work once the game goes live for the Head Start event/official launch.
The fix is simple! Please go through the process of changing your Aion game account password at your earliest convenience. You can even change it to the same password you are currently using.

Choosing a strong password:
This is very important for your account security. Make it something you can remember but be sure to have capital and lowercase letters, as well as numbers. A great guide how to pick a strong password can be found at http://www.microsoft.com/protect/yourself/password/create.mspx
