Given that good security is based on having strong passwords that change 
over time, hiding the capability under About Me is really no go. It's 
probably to late to change for FC5, but I would suggest at the minimum 
changing the hint that is shown when the mouse is held over the About Me 
entry from:
Set your personal information
Set your personal information and user password

And the title to "About me and my account". (or login)

There would then be a slim chance that a user would actually find it! 
What do others think ?
