important update regarding your TechRadar account






It has come to our attention that TechRadar's user registration database has been compromised. Unfortunately, user details including username, email address, date-of-birth and encrypted passwords have been stolen in the process. We are not aware of any misuse of this data but are taking action today to alert users as soon as has been possible.

Our IT team launched an investigation immediately and has identified the cause of the problem and taken action to rectify it. The forums have been closed and will remain closed until we are satisfied that there are no further issues and the forum can be safely restored to service.

In the meantime, although your TechRadar password is encrypted, we are contacting you today to let you know that if you use the same password on TechRadar for any other websites then we strongly advise you to change these passwords immediately.

We will contact you again shortly with instructions on how to update your password details for the TechRadar website.

We take the security of your data extremely seriously and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Yours faithfully,

Nick Merritt
