locked Re: after transfer, member having trouble creating password


It sounded like a random string to me. But I'll pass that on. Thanks.

If she happened to have ever used that same password anywhere else she should go immediately and change it in all those places. This is a danger of using the same password for more than one account - exposure of one exposes them all.

I hate to think the password is something like a pets name, used for everything from email to banking. I'm a firm believer in using something like Password Safe or Last Pass to generate a unique random password for each account you hold.
