    Although not as exciting as updates that bring new features, security updates are equally (if not more) important. The following security updates have been made to Kinmunity:
    • Users on the Tor network can no longer access Kinmunity.
    Tor is a tool used to mask your IP address when browsing. Although this has many legitimate uses, it has primarily been abused by trolls on Kinmunity. We have never allowed users on the Tor network to create accounts on Kinmunity. From today onwards, you will not be able to login while using Tor either.
    • Users who have enabled Two-Step Verification can now choose to permanently trust a device.
    Previously, users had the option of remembering a device for up to thirty days so that they were not prompted for their second factor of authentication each time they logged in. We have now included the option to remember a device permanently. You will be able to revoke access to devices that you lose access to on the Two Step Verification page.
    • Users can now see all their active logged in sessions from the "Login Sessions" page.
    For added security, users can view all the devices they're logged in from on the "Login Sessions" page. You'll also be able to log these devices out of Kinmunity from this page.
    • Data Leaks? Kinmunity has your back!
    If your personal information has been compromised in a data leak, we’ll let you know via email when you login. (using the Have I been pwned? Check if your email has been compromised in a data breach API!)
    • We're doing more in the background to keep you safe!
    We’ve implemented behavior based checks to help secure your account. If something is up, we’ll secure your account automatically let you know as soon as possible.
