Secure SSL Connection

Always secure (SSL)! Always on!

We recently enabled secure (SSL) connections to OpenComps. After checking that everything is working as expected, we are now switching all traffic to only secure connections. As you come to our site – whether directly or via one of our emails – always check the (green) closed padlock and/or the https: connection.

Happy secure browsing!

System Alert! All Systems Good

Web host reports fully restored and operational email systems. Two-factor authentication (2FA) enabled again for standard logins. We still highly recommend that you connect your account to Google or LinkedIn for a more convenient login procedure and as a secondary means of access. We use them only for login auth, nothing else.

System Alert! Email issues

Web host reported issues with their email system which impacted OC’ two-factor authentication (2FA) email service. Temporarily turned off 2FA while email service is again at full functionality. Apologies for any inconvenience. Please feel free to report issues so we can jump on them as quickly as we can.

Highly recommend connecting OC to Google/LinkedIn networks (go to Settings > Profile & Networks > Edit…) so you have secondary (or tertiary) way of accessing your account in cases of email outages or outdated email address in your account (from job switches).

Default behavior of the login script was updated to keep you signed in longer so you don’t have to log into OpenComps too often on your private, personal machine. If you are using a public (shared) computer, remember to Sign Out at the end of your session to protect the privacy of your account.
