had to make another account

Post by BunnyMeistro » Thu Oct 17, 2019 8:48 pm

so, for some reason, you have to enter your CURRENT PASSWORD to change your PASSWORD, generally speaking, if you know your password, why change it? i forgot my password, so i had to make another account, WHY DO YOU NEED TO KNOW YOUR CURRENT PASSWORD TO CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD

When you request an e-mail for assistance with a lost forum password, in the e-mail you receive, you get a randomly generated password. THAT randomly generated password within the e-mail becomes your "current password".

At no point in the process of replacing a forgotten password, do you need to know said forgotten password, mostly because that wouldn't even make logical sense. Creating a secondary forum account was 100% unnecessary. This coming from someone who forgot and replaced my forum password less than 4 days ago.

The reason you need a current password to change said password is, what if you get hacked? Hackers could change your PWD and lock you out.

Plus that tinypic thingy triggers my OCD please update it

If you get hacked you request a password reset...

Besides, the only way to get to your account at that point is via your email - so the hacker would need access to that too.

I though you where referring to forgetting forum passwords, forgotten password e-mail supplies a new one.

For forgetting in-game passwords, there is a specific process outlined on the Discord group to get it fixed.

really hate to sound like moron then saying this. butt then making a password for a account on a web site is best to make it easy one to memorize something like food. forgoting about your password is a easy thing then memory of a person for small things is memorize less,
The battle that might never end.
