    Password change

    Can anybody tell me if there's a password change option on this? I'm logged in full time on desk top but can't remember what the password is to log in on mobile. I've had a look and I can't see a change option anywhere. Messaged the forum on their "Contact Us" function but got nothing back.... Encountering that a lot more these days! "Am I the yucky?!"

    In your browser of choice on your desktop will be a password and login tab often in settings just look up your password as it will be stored there if it is always logged on.

    Really?? That seems like a huge security flaw.

    Thats what happens when people want convenience. Clearly a trade-off with Security.
    On my laptop, I need to supply a fingerprint to allow the passwords to be viewed. Others a password, or a pin.
    Generally speaking, its not viewable without authentication. Something to bear in mind if you give someone your password to fix your computer - they will have access to all of your stored website user names and passwords.

    Unless it's stored encrypted, which windows is famous for not doing, then anyone with access to your physical machine can probably get it.

    Yep I fix the odd one here and there for friends and family, nothing is that secure if you know your way around a little even Linux as it often uses the same web browsers with the same security or lack of
