Hi there,
So, if I forgot my password, I realise i can reset it. Though, I don't want to lose the old one as I use it all over the place. Can i keep the old one if I have it reset, or can you tell me my old password?

Hello snobeee,

The reset password replaces your old password with a new one. It doesn't disclose the old password but creates a link to allow you to create a new password.

This is a security aspect to prevent hacking of sites.
