Re: Delay in receiving Self-Serve password reset email

@penelope2  @Booker

It looks like that the password reset function is NOT working again.  You will need to contact moderator to reset password and further concerns.  

 

Here is instructions to contact moderator:

Recommendation:  do not send multiple message to moderators.  Each new message will put you further down the job list.  

 

Or just send a private message through the following link :

Please include in the private message your phone number, your account number and PIN code.

I've looked at lastpass but if they get hacked aren't you kinda screwed? 


Nope. Pretty much all password managers use local, on device decryption. So unencrypted data is never sent and the provider has no access to the unencrypted data. I personally like 1Password. 


@mtfolks @jp2 it depends.  1Password as noted is stored locally but you can also have it sync to Google Drive or iCloud or whatever cloud storage solution you like.  LastPass is always synced to their cloud service and yes you could view that as a vulnerability.  However, the only store your 256-bit AES encrypted password info, they never have access to your plaintext info.  More details:  https://lastpass.com/support.php?cmd=showfaq&id=6926

Re: [RESOLVED] Delay in receiving Self-Serve password reset email

I'm also experiencing both the inablity to access my Self-Serve account using my previous password and non-receipt of the password reset e-mail.  Made multiple requests for password reset e-mails since yesterday afternoon and none have been received.

 

Grateful if I could receive assistance with this.

Yes. But any reputable password manager has no access to your passkey as it never leaves your device. So even if the encrypted data is stored in the cloud, your passkey is not. 

 

In other words, could that encrypted data get hacked from the cloud? Possibly. But good luck decrypting it without the passkey.

 

Also means the password manager company itself can’t access your passwords even if they wanted to.

Re: Delay in receiving Self-Serve password reset email

This delay is causing am issue, because I'd like to cancel my auto payment and terminate services. Thus is ridiculous, I've been trying to for 5 days, every time I get an email to reset my password (I forgot it), it says its expired or something like that. Horrible service, I sent an email to cancel my services and doing the same here, so I have proof I requested cancellation. Cancel my services please, and I better not get charged for another month!!!!!!
