I’ve for­got­ten an im­por­tant pass­word!

Mac Format - - TO THE RESCUE -

You need you make sure your pass­word is com­plex enough to make it dif­fi­cult to guess, while si­mul­ta­ne­ously en­sur­ing it’s sim­ple enough to re­mem­ber. The so­lu­tion? Let OS X re­mem­ber it for you by stor­ing pass­words in your Key­chain. Usu­ally Sa­fari will of­fer to save pass­words for you, and will usu­ally fill them in for you when you come back to the web­site. Oc­ca­sion­ally it might not – but the pass­word is still safely saved in your Key­chain. Hap­pily, you can re­trieve it. Launch Key­chain Ac­cess (in Ap­pli­ca­tions/Util­i­ties) and then search for the site from the field in the top-right, or browse Web form pass­words. Find the one you want and ei­ther right-click and choose Copy Pass­word to Clip­board, or dou­ble-click then check Show pass­word. Ei­ther way, you’ll need to en­ter your lo­gin pass­word.
