How do I change my Password?

post by Jess · 2022-03-17T17:11:05.280Z · EA · GW · 2 comments

I've just spent some minutes jumping back and forth between "Edit Settings" and "User Profile" looking for a way to change my password.  Apparently I'm stuck with this one forever.  I'm sure there must be a way, but it sure isn't easy to find!

Hi Jess, thanks for the question!

The easiest method for this that I'm aware of is to open an incognito window, go to the Forum login page, and then click "forgot password" (or just go to this url in an incognito window), and then reset the password by inserting your Forum email address and pretending that you've forgotten your current password.

This is not very intuitive, apologies about that!

And as Andre said, in the future, you could ask us about this by messaging me directly, by emailing forum@centreforeffectivealtruism.org, or by clicking the blue intercom button in the bottom right of your browser window:

I am unsure of this myself. I'd suggest you contact the moderators by clicking the blue button in the bottom right of every page on this site. It looks like a speech bubble with a parenthesis in it.
