password reset woes

Postby MartinR » Thu Apr 30, 2015 1:55 pm

Hi,

just trying to change my password back to something sensible after I forgot it on one machine, and the user account management screen won't let me as it seems to think my email (on gmail.com) is an untrusted domain. Since when is gmail untrusted?

Any ideas please?

Cheers
Martin

Well at least the cached old passwords seem to still be working on my other devices. All very odd, I shall return to it next week.

Cheers

Can you not use one of your other devices to set a new password?

Now that is the sort of creative thinking I'd expect from Frothers. Good Idea.

Cheers

User Control Panel - Hover over Overview button - Click on profile - Hover over Edit Profile button - Click on Edit Account Settings - Change your password from there... :)
