Default Passwords and such

Each and every Moderator (or IT guru) on here should be required, once a month, to go through the rediculous "i forgot my password" menu so they can experience what a royal pain in the f'ing a** it is. Yes, of course I check the "remember me" box, but I don't log on here once a day or even once a month, so by the time I log back on, my old password is no longer valid. I'm on many forums and never have any troble logging on. Never used to have trouble logging on here until they beefed up security. Heaven forbid someone steal my personal info and learn my fake birthday that I entered or what state I live in.

You could try writing down your password for just such occasions.

There are also programs (some built into Google, Chrome, Windows, Norton) that will do all that for you. I remember all my important ones (anything financial or personal) and let my program create and remember all the others, most of which are so complicated and random I couldn't remember anyway. I have hundreds of passwords I don't even know and have never seen.

It's Vbulletin, not us.

Firefox has a password-rememberer add-on. Firefox also has a way to "sync" between various devices on which you have Firefox installed. I presume other browsers have something similar. I don't have to remember any of them.

I've had the same problem with several forums and I've left them set to the temp password that was emailed. That way all I have to do is search my emails for the password!
