Is there a way to indicate which fields are required and which are not in a form?

With the create account form, I want to give people the option to enter their address, phone, etc. but not require them.

I have it setup in the Theme/Forms that way, but...

When the user sees the account creation form, it looks like they have to fill in ALL their information and they may not do it since that's too much information to fill in or they don't want to give me that much info.

I want them to clearly see that all they need to fill in is their name, e-mail and password and can ignore the rest of the fields. BUt I don't want to not have those fields there just in case they want to fill that info in.

Is this possible to do with CSS? Or is there a setting somewhere?

It is currently not possible to add a required indication, even with additional CSS.

I think this is pertinent with recent UK changes to criminalise data loss.

The less i hold, the better, and while i tell users that address is optional with pick up, they all include it. Data i really don't want to be responsible for.

What are the realistic chance of data theft of PI from a sytist db?

Chances of data theft is pretty low. In order someone to steal data, they would have to access your hosting account to get to the database. At that point, they could actually do anything they wanted. The data stored in the database is name, email, address .... password are encrypted and can't be decrypted and no financial information is stored in the database.
