As the old joke goes, there is no better way to forget your password than to tick the “remember password” box. Each of us has many accounts on the Internet, and having one password for all is strongly discouraged by unspoken network security rules. What to do if you forgot the password from the social network or work mail?
1. On each site there is a magic button "Recover password". A link will be sent to your email that will reset the current password. This is the simplest solution to the problem, but not in the event that you have a lot of mailboxes and you do not remember which of them were registered, or you forgot the password from the mail itself.

Even the best of us can forget the password.Even the best of us can forget the password.
2. Is Caps Lock turned on and is the keyboard layout correct? Perhaps you wrote the password in Russian letters, but in the English layout, or vice versa.
3. Check the login - you could enter the correct password, but in the spelling of the name an error crept in. Or you confused .com with .ru when specifying mail - this happens very often.
4. Enumerate your passwords in different variations: different case, digits-supplements.Perhaps this resource should have a minimum password of 8 characters, so you were forced to add a digit to your regular password (most often it is 1). Or at registration they demanded at least one capital letter in the password.
5. Scrub the SMS - some resources send a password to access the phone.
6. Recall the moment of registration: what important events happened at that time, which people were central to your life. The password could be the date of birth of the child or your partner, the protection of a diploma or promotion.
7. If you do not have the habit of converting any meaningful dates or words into passwords, you should still sit and think. Very often, the right combination comes up in memory after a good brainstorming session, even if you initially had no clues.

8. If all else fails, try contacting the technical support of the resource. You may be asked a code word that you entered during registration or an answer to a secret question. Their choice is usually small: mother's maiden name, favorite children's book, or the first pet's name.Be prepared to give other information as well: the estimated time of registration, the time of the last visit, the name specified during registration, etc.
9. We at KnowAll.org do not recommend buying special programs for password cracking (it’s very easy to become a victim of cyber fraudsters), just know that such programs exist. For example, John the Ripper, Rainbowcrack, Hashcat - they act by brute force. In no case do not use them for hacking other accounts (art. 272 ​​of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).
