I’m using @pamela_mullins WordPress site for my job.
This is the third time I’ve seen her tweet this, but it feels weirdly familiar.
As a journalist, my job is to report on what’s happening in the world, and this is my second attempt at changing my password.
I don’t know what’s behind her frustration, but I suspect it’s not the latest of a series of password changes.
On the other hand, she probably isn’t alone.
For years, journalists have been trying to change passwords for every single piece of content they read online.
As the term “Password Reset” began to gain traction in the past few years, it was an idea that seemed to catch on.
Many sites started offering a free option to reset passwords on their sites, which would prevent people from re-using them online.
It was a great idea, but in practice, it’s rarely practical.
For example, there are a lot of websites that still use the old-fashioned, one-time password that’s used for login, rather than a password that can be easily reset in the event of a system compromise.
The new password reset method isn’t a big deal.
Most people will never use it on a daily basis, but for the vast majority of users, it will suffice for accessing their accounts.
I’ve noticed that my passwords are often the same across sites, so it’s easy to get confused.
But sometimes, I’ve had a password reset request and found myself unable to remember the password.
The same is true for a lot the sites I’ve used recently.
I often find myself re-reading posts that I’ve forgotten to login to before, and the password reset won’t fix this problem.
And for some people, this password reset process doesn’t work.
For those users, I recommend that they try to create a new password.
But the solution isn’t always as simple as changing a few characters in the username.
For some users, the process is more complex.
They’ve used a lot more advanced password management techniques, such as password-based phishing or malware.
These techniques can take weeks to fully implement.
I’m not trying to bash any of these techniques.
What I’m trying to say is that for some users these solutions don’t work or take too much time.
I can’t guarantee that the passwords they use are secure, but there are ways to protect them against the best of these solutions.
There are also many people out there who are using strong passwords on a regular basis.
I hope this post helps you understand why some people might have trouble remembering their passwords.
