Password/Login Problems

Postby FluffyBunnySlippers » Fri May 02, 2014 5:30 pm

Anyone else been having password and/or login problems the past few days? Mine keeps doing something like resetting my password without my permission or something and I keep having to go the "forgot password" route. :confused: Any ideas?

There have been a number of major things that have happened online in general. I would suggest changing your password and ensuring that wherever you store your passwords hasn't been compromised. It may be something not just related to this forum.

There is also the Internet Explorer security flaw out there. While, most likely, it isn't something that will affect you, there is always the possibility (if you use IE). I would recommend changing your password and use a different browser, if you don't already.
Microsoft has supposedly released a patch that fixes the issue, so if you do use IE, you will want to make sure that you have Windows updated.

I see on your account the password has been changed 4 times; 2 of those being "Anonymous" and 2 "FluffyBunnySlippers". Don't worry, they are all you using the password reset thingy. I can't see anything else on your account that is a problem, so I'm not sure what is causing it, but it may be as the ladies above me have suggested - there's a lot of password issues on the net what with Heartbleed and the IE11 bug.
I'd ask that you clear the cookie cache and temporary internet files to see if it's a session cookie hiccup, but I will keep an eye on your account for a little while just to be sure. :)

Thanks, guys and gals! Seems to be working fine now. I was having problems logging in on my mobile devices too. Two of the reset emails got sent to Spam for whatever reason even though the first one didn't so I freaked out before I thought to look there. Love when gmail complicates things. IE is evil. Chrome is your friend. :nod Probably just a fluke. You guys are awesome!
