CLOSED--Resetting password--CLOSED
« on: July 22, 2022, 12:41:43 AM »
Hi moderators,

Not sure where in this forum i would post this question. I forgot my password and not receiving a reset link in my email. I have this account logged in on phone, but realized i dont know my password on a desktop and cant seem to reset it.

Here's what might work . . . .

From your mobile phone where you're logged in post a reply or send a post to TFF on an appropriate topic.  (In fact you have just sent something –the one about resetting your password.)

Then visit the post online at TTF using your laptop or your compú. 

From there you should be able to access your Profile from the link near the top left of the page.  Go to
PROFILE > ACCOUNT SETTINGS and try resetting your password from there.

Failing that, contact one of the Moderators to see if they have a useful suggestion.

You may just have to unsubscribe from TFF then re-subscribe and set up a new password.

OK — HTH

Is your password saved in your phone's browser? What browser does your phone use?

I use chrome on phone, it is saved automatically and stays signed in.

As for resetting password it requires old password.

If it's saved in Chrome, you should be able to click in the old password field and it'll fill it in (depending on your phone, you might have to do some additional clicking/verification). Even better, you can just go into Chrome's saved passwords and it'll show you what your password is (after you confirm/verify yourself). I have an iphone 11 and confirmed both ways work just now on it.

It worked! I was able to see my password. Thank you everyone for the replies.

This is also concerning seeing that passwords are saved and can be viewed like that.

Good, glad it worked.
Unless you are an individual of some wealth/power/prominence, you have little to worry about. You could choose not to save your passwords in Chrome (which I do for my bank accounts, etc.,), but then you'd have to enter your password every time, for every site....which would probably lead to using the same/similar password for multiple sites. Using the same/similar password for everything carries a much greater risk, IMO.
