Not Planned Suggestion: Option to have a different password for ACP

    I think it would be great to have an option to have 2 separate passwords, one for you (the admin) to log into your general forum area and another for logging into the ACP. It would be much more secure, and being optional would make it so it was not an intrusive addition for those who don't want the added security.

    Maybe even rotating between a few personalized security questions to be asked with the ACP login from time to time would suffice.

    Most browsers are set up to remember passwords anyway and password syncing between browsers is commonplace, so it's not like it would be a lot more for someone to remember, and those who don't use password storage or syncing are generally security enthusiasts and would probably like another password between their account and the ACP anyway lol.

    It seems like simply using a .htaccess file to add an additional layer of protection would solve that.
