Grottocenter safer

  In order to increase the security of your connection and to better protect your personal data, you will have to change your password on Grottocenter.   Vincent has just joined the Grottocenter developer team. His first mission, which he took on on a voluntary basis, was to take stock of the security of the application. Based on his evaluation, with Clément and Benjamin, they improved the Grottocenter code. For these new features to be implemented, in particular the use of BCrypt to encrypt your password, you will need to change it.
