Have you lost or forgotten your password as seen in the previous article? Don't worry, you might find it very quickly, especially if you're used to using it on multiple sites.
A guide to finding your password
Ask yourself the right questions
To start, try to remember how you chose your password:
- Is it related to personal elements of your life such as your son's first name? Your birthday?
If this is the case, you should be able to find it quickly.
- If this is not the case on the other hand, you may have used a common combination, such as AZERTY or 123456.
- Because your passwords are all secure, maybe you thought about writing it down somewhere?
- Or maybe it is still registered in an email sent by the site to your email.
Use software to find the lost combination
If all these elements are inconclusive, before you consider changing your password, you can use software to help you find the lost combination.
Such software as Pass Revelator is easily downloadable and free, and allows you to find the lost password.
Remember, however, that if you were able to find your password using software, others may have, too. So it's really important to make your password as secure as possible and protect it.
Change it to avoid losing it again
However, if you manage to find it after momentarily losing it, it would be wise to consider changing it so that it does not happen again.
However, if you have regular difficulties remembering your passwords, you can use password management software or make a list of combinations you use from the moment it is protected.
