Being Locked Out of WordPress…


So i really missed blogging my thoughts out!

Finally, am able to log in!

…backstory…

Recently I lost my phone as one crooked snatched it away from my wife’s bag. Snatchers are everywhere and we’re not as safe as we casually assume. You’ve been warned. 🙂

Few minutes after losing my phone, i went into panic mode. Have to revoke my phone’s access, reset my passwords, password-protect my ‘Accounts’ section in OneNote, etc.. All of these ordeal I have to endure because err, am not rich thus can’t afford the big apple hehe. Well, to make the long story short, i was able to reset passwords on all of my accounts memorizing all of credentials. Sadly, my memory is not as sharp as it used to be. And of all my accounts, I forgot my new password for my wordpress account! And because I’m an idiot, I did not enabled the 2-way verification… I have to stop myself now, I’m getting technical..

For few weeks I keep thinking how I can log in. Then almost unconsciously, I open my laptop and log in. As if the universe joined forces together (ref. The Alchemist), my gmail account remembered my credentials!

Looking back, I realized that my laptop is the current device in sync with my lost phone. I’m not sure how, but apparently even if I sync’d in my new device it did not save all credentials. Strange.

Well, I’m just more than happy to return in the blogosphere..yey!

    1. Hi, thanks for dropping by, and as always i highly appreciate taking efforts to comment 🙂

      Thing is, i’m paranoid in losing my physical notebook. What I did now is have the OneNote installed both in my PC and phone, and have the notes password-protected. But the problem is if there’s error in syncing documents.

      So yeah, i’ll get new notebook.. thanks for your suggestion 😁
