Re: Weekly Welcome 04 October, 2019

Hello, World!

I’m a GitHub user for more then a year. I was logging in, but I got a nag-screen asking me to change my password because it was “not too strong”

We heard that you lost your GitHub password. Sorry about that!

WAT? I lost? Guys, I use GitHub only for getting a technical support from software developers and bug reports. I need an easy password which I should remember everywhere everytime even if I logged in a year ago. Why the hell I need to change my password and spend 5 more minutes of my life doing it via slow WiFi?

P.S. Now I have already 3 messages from GitHub in my inbox. Password reset link, reset notification and  “Please review this sign in”. All 3 went to trash…

Hi @wymaxep2011,

Thanks for being here and for being a long time user!  

This post was moved to a different board that fits your topic of discussion a bit better.

As you’ll notice, your topic is now here in the How to use Git and GitHub board. No action is needed on your part; and you’ll notice that this question is already answered in another thread here.

I’d recommend checking there for your answer. In an effort to keep the Community Forum organized and make it easier for other users to find information, we ask that users continue the conversation in existing threads, instead of opening new ones about the same topic. For this reason, I’ll be closing this topic, and you can continue the conversation in the original thread, if you’d like.

As mentioned in that other post, you’ll need to reach out to private support for help with this. We can’t discuss specific account details in the public forum.
