How do I change my password for this site?

I've been wondering the same thing.  I believe there was a time when we could do it easily.  But last time I looked at my profile, I didn't see an option to change the password.

Maybe the next time the site asks you to log in there will be an option to change it, or a "forgot password" process you can initiate and make the change that way.

Actually in 18 years of running this site I've never implemented a password change system. It's been on my to-do list for years, I'll try to look into that sometime soon within the next few weeks.

Thanks, Robert

I ask because my browser alerted me that the password I used had been hacked at some time. I usually change passwords on all of the sites I log in to very frequently for security purposes but have never thought to do this one until now, so I started looking to change it.

Thanks again.

Browser Alert?

Seems unlikely a web browser can directly determine that a password has been hacked.

What browser are you using?

Perhaps the advisory was bogus from a malware infection or a (pop-up) advertisement / solicitation for some sort of security software?  Or was it via an e-mail that you received?

I get e-mail advisories almost daily from various eastern, Asian, and Russian sources warning that this or that e-mail password has been hacked and the perp installed software to take control of my webcam and keyboard, took screen-caps of porn content, webcam shots of me watching it, captured my contact list, and will send the images to all of them unless I pay hundreds of dollars ransom to a BitCoin account.

The tricks are that 1) while the e-mails referenced are valid addresses, all of them but one are forwarders that don't have any passwords that can be hacked ... and 2) I don't have a webcam (well, I do but haven't used it in several years and it's disconnected from the computer) ... which makes ALL the warnings bogus.

Google Chrome.

Google has a password manager function that will generate secure passwords for you, but it will also notify you when you are using a password that has been Hacked and compromised. I had to log on to the site to write this and there is a big red notice on the top part of this page I am typing right now.

use the snippingtool and take a screenshot of the message please.

I ask because I have not heard of Chrome's password manager checking against a known passwords list and am concerned you may have a bad extension installed.

windows key + r to get the run dialog, type snippingtool press enter.
