Forget a password lately?

Post by orin stepanek » Tue Dec 10, 2019 10:12 pm

Did you ever have a problem trying to get into a website; only to have gotten your password? So you have to go to redoing your password! OK fine but you haven't been there for a long time! So you have to answer like what is your favorite song! I have a lot of favorite songs; can't remember what I put down a millennium ago! Think they'll ask you a different question? :bang: I finally had to go to my server to help me out; and that took some doing? God Bless Passwords; & thanks for letting me blow off some steam! :b:

Have you tried using a password manager? Any password you can remember is likely a bad password.
