Just a broad security question: How do you assign your users' first password? Do you require they change it immediately? What is the best method for security purposes?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

how i do is it if lets say it is a new user or even if reset of password…. create a text time, put it into a folder, zip the folder with password.

then send the zip folder 1st, then the password on another email (that is if you communicate with them thru email)

its better for them to change the password immediately especially if you are going to give them the user id = password or for example if the user id is password the password will be password too…so people can crack that account quiet easily..
