Stop Trying To Guess Your Password

Tech Advice Uncategorized

So you go to enter your password and it appears you may have forgotten it.

So you enter it again , that doesn’t work , then you try again and again.

If you do this , you will be locked out , as most of the big companies , for example Google , Microsoft , Apple will believe that you ( or someone else ) are trying to get unauthorised access and will require you to reset your password.

If you have done this use the “Forgotten Password” and reset your password.
While you are there give them your mobile phone number so you turn on 2 factor authentication.

  1. Yes this works well until you travel overseas. What can be done to receive the SMS’s codes when you are using a local sim?
    As I have just found out trying to access a message from MyGov.
    Cheers
