Once you are logged in you can change your password from the settings section.. A link to it is found in FetLife's header on the right hand side in the drop-down under your nickname. Click on your nickname, then on "Update Settings", then on the "Change Password" tab.
You can reset your password by going to our retrieve login information form and submitting your email address attached to your account. Once you do that we will send you an email with instructions on how you can reset your password.
Make sure you check your junk mail and spam filter because sometimes FetLife mail gets caught up in there. If that does not work for you don't hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you remember the email address and password you used to sign-up to FetLife you can login using your email address instead of your nickname and you can just check out your profile to see what your nickname is.
If you can't remember your password follow the instructions to reset your password in the previous article above.
We don't store passwords in plain text format like many sites do. All passwords are encrypted in the database that even the FetLife gods themselves cannot decipher. We do this because your security, and ours, is important to us!
What we can do is send you a temporary password to allow you to log in and change it yourself! (We're all about the do-it-yourself thing - that's why John falls asleep with a bottle of lube in his hand...). Send ua an email to email@example.com.
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your nickname, old email address and we will see what kind of voodoo magic we can work for you. No promises though!
How do I create an easy to remember but hard to guess password?
Here are two possible ways:
Take for example "The big John Baku jumps over the lazy James Lennon at FetLife, eating two hotdogs" - you can convert it to "TbJBjotlJL@F,e2h". Complete gibberish, eh? But actually if you remember the sentence you can just recite it in your mind while you type your password (be careful that you don't say it out loud, though ;-) ). It doesn't have to be as long as this example, but should have at least 8 characters.
Oh, and under penalty of non-consensual spankings: DON'T use one of the above example passwords, or any example password from any website!
