Picture verification upon password change

Picture verification upon password change

Short, concise description of the idea
Use the picture verification idea from account creation when a user changes their password.

Full description of the idea
Since there has been a lot of scare of password stealing and changing robots lately (and because I know many people who aren't very secure with theur passwords, this would be a way to prevent, atleast robots from changing an accounts password. I checked the previus suggestions, and didn't see this, maybe it's a bad idea.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Added password security
  • Thwarted Robots
  • Piece of mind??

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Bandwidth
  • possibly rediesign of the manage password page
  • additional work for the user that may end up in them keeping their existing password

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • Use the same system from the account creation.
