Having problems with login details?

Posted on April 27, 2017 at 11:42 am

Many of us have hundreds of usernames and passwords for different websites to allow us access to place orders, view order history, track orders or check our online statements. It is not advisable to have the same password for all sites as if your password becomes compromised then you may find that multiple accounts are accessed in quick succession.

If you are trying to log in to a website and find that it is stating your username or password is incorrect, then you need to try and reset it. Some websites will let you do this on screen by answering a few security questions, others will email you a secure link to reset the password.

Ideally you want to be able to keep a list of all passwords and users names buy again, this is not advised as if someone manages to access this list they will be able to get in to all of your accounts.

Why not keep a list of user names and possible clues to a password.  This way at least you can be sure that your user name is correct and have some hope of being able to guess the password.
