If cannot remember your password for FUDforum, you should go to the reset password page
, on that page enter your email address inside the text box and press the Reset Password
button. This will send you an email with a special URL, when you access that URL your password will be reset and you will then also receive a new email with your password.
There is a sequence of two emails
sent to you. The second is sent to you after you click the link in the first. This is documented inside the process. It's a little complex, but designed to protect your account.
Your passwords are stored in a one-way encryption format called MD5 hash. This is military grade 128-bit encryption, there is no way to restore your password. It works by encrypting the data every time you enter it and then comparing against encrypted version. Therefore if you forget your password it can not be restored back, so, upon a restore password request the forum will randomly generate you a new password.
