[Help Needed!] Let us know about your Self-Serve password/username reset experience

Deputy Mayor / Adjoint au Maire

Hey Community,


I hope you’re having a fantastic start to the holiday period with our More is Merrier Campaign - have you gotten your free gifts yet?


As it’s the season of giving, we’d love for you to give your feedback to us in a quick 5 minute survey (clever right?). As part of our journey to continually improve the customer support experience, we’re currently looking at how to make the Self-Serve password and username reset experience easier for you. 


If the below criteria apply to you, we’d love to hear from you:


  1. You are a current Public Mobile customer with a Self-Serve account
  2. You’ve needed to request a password or username reset 


If you’re interested in having your voice heard and determine the direction we take on this, check out the link below before December 15th!

I don't want to give a third party my email address. I would have been delighted to share some thoughts. So I'll say things here.

One should be able to change their internal, initially signed up email address.

The password reset is fine. It just doesn't work for some people. Spam? Filters? Maybe having to do with a slightly different email address? Case maybe? So we should be able to go in and change it.

But that's once in.

I haven't had a problem with the password reset. The timeout should be longer for those times that people are struggling to find it maybe in spam folders and such. Maybe if the system sees mixed case then send out the reset to an all lower case version.

Hi you took two payments from my bank account I cannot afford this,you took 2 x 39 dollars plus 16 dollars can this please returned asap,but keep my December payment please

Hi @Maryphillips 

Could you please go here and post your question there so that community sees the problem, many people who can help will not see your message here. It would be useful to take a screenshot of your payment history and zoomout or blackout sensitive info.

I mentionned it in the survey, but in 4 accounts that I am asked to help resetting their password, the reset email never arrived in 8 out of 10 attempts, and the other two came late by hours. so basically contacting mods directly is the only solution in my case. Others might have seen an easier experiance .



I have been with PM and this forum over 16 months.  I don't meet the survey requirement as i do not need to change my username or password.  I will give my experience here.


For the past 16 months, when I found a post asking for password reset help, I tested the pasword reset link myself before posting my help info.  It was getting worse.  From receiving password reset email within 10 to 30 minutes to recently over 2 hours.  Needless to say, the reset link provided in the reset email was expired.
