I'm back on again tonight, but not sure for how long.

I got logged off when I got a new computer. Then it wouldn't let me log on so they changed my password. Next time I got on I was logged off again and it said that wasn't the correct password. Finally got the password changed again. Then somehow I got logged off again and it was telling me that I had to log on with my email instead of my username...so i put in my email address and it kept saying that was my user name....blah blah blah...then had to reset my password again and by some miracle (not sure exactly what happened) I'm on tonight. For how long I don't know...but ....HERE I AM...lol...for now.

Hmm. That's all very weird. I hope you get it worked out.

I went thru the same thing last fall. Went to log in one day and it would not let me in. kept telling me I had the wrong password and all sorts of crazy things. I tried e mailing the people who supposedly run this thing and could get no where. I was unable to get in for 3 months. Finally some how or another got me a new password. I even tried to reapply for membership and was told I was already a member, even tho it denied me to enter it.

That happned to me. It seemed like I was having to reset my password every time I logged in.
I am now keeping a list of my passwords and not having Google control my passwords. I think something messed up my Google password file. One other thing. When we login, I wish there was an option that requested the displaying of the password. Then, if a password is rejected, we can see exactly what the rejected password contained.

Yes, Dick, I agree that it's confusing you can't actually see what the rejected password is...just little dots...or even to see what the correct password is. I'm guessin' my problem might have been caused somehow because I went out and splurged (never a good idea) on a Macbook and iphone...I have had an ipad to use here and there but it's really my grandson's. So now between the windows computer downstairs and the chromebook and the new apple stuff...I'm wondering is somehow that got everything all messed up...but I guess I'll never know. Haven't been kicked off of here for several days now so maybe it's straightened out. Another thing that bothers me is that getting it straightened out is just as mysterious a thing to me as however it got messed up in the first place...lol...I just feel lost in the algorithm or whatever...lol...never understanding either what went wrong, or what went right.

Some websites are having a block you can check if you want to see what you are entering. I like this. Makes it easier to find what the problem might be. First I want to know is if I made a mistake or something happened to the login process.

Peggy - I just bought a new computer. I have spent most of 2 days trying to get things working like they did on the previous computer. More computer storage, speed and power. But changes have been made in Windows 11 that make some things less convenient. Bought some software and the written procedures are not very well done. Too much verbage and not enough specific information. Today is a holiday and one software seller is closed. The other software does not correctly describe what happens near the end of the installation process. Tomorrow morning I wiill resume work on installing those 2 software apps.

Well congrats on the new computer! But...ugh...I hope you can get through the turmoil of getting it all set up and ready for use. I hope you like it. Remember that as you go through all the ... I would say nightmare, lol...but I'll put it nicer and just say ...as you jump through the hoops. Nothing like getting new technology ...lol. We all need it...but it drives us crazy at the same time.
