    Probably like most people, I have lots of gmail accounts for different sites i have so that i minimise the footprints i leave as much as possible. I don't do anything illegal with the email accounts.

    I am finding though that Gmail keeps forcing me to change my password. It's an announce really rather than a problem except today i found that my new password doesn't work. I wrote it down so i know it is correct. I am now having to go through the recovery process which requires card details and a payment of $1 and various other information like ISP etc. The account has a fake name so will it work if i put in my card details or am i just wasting my time and opening myself up to other things trying to recover the email address?

    I would rather not lose the account as i have several blogspot blogs on there however i don't want to open myself up to other punishments

    You wrote your password down?

    Who writes down passwords?

    Savvy IMers use RoboForm or LastPass to semi-auto manage all of their passwords.

    Or, they use Excel to manage their passwords through the old fashion copying and pasting; which is the hard way of doing things.

    Writing down passwords is just as old fashion as cassette tapes and dial up Internet.

    But more importantly, if Google keeps forcing you to change your password, YOU are doing something WRONG!

    This is because your are making many Fake Ids from the same ip, your personal computer I guess, next time use proxy!

    Haha, and a happy new year to you!

    Writing a password down doesn't necessarily mean on a pen and paper, it is a figure of speach! I have spread sheets for usernames and passwords for each site which works fine - it doesn't need to be secure as there is nothing to steal. Roboform is just a secure way of storing passwords which i don't need.

    Google doesn't keep changing my passwords, it has happened a couple of times recently across 50 odd accounts. This time though it has actually changed it so I am having to go through the recovery process.

    Quite the opposite actually, half the problem is because i do use proxies with my programs which flags up unusual activity and forces me to change your password.

    multiple ids from same ip creates this problem. you should change your ip very often so it does not creates problems. and i didnt knew recovery needs so many requirements :/ i thought you just have to give in your number and thats it. :/

    It's changing quite a bit recently and they're making it harder whatever you do. You use proxies and it looks suspicious as you are logging into the same email account from different locations. You don't use proxies and it looks suspicious as you are logging into different email accounts from the same IP.

    6 months ago i never had any problems, recently though I am having to change the passwords. Not regularly just every now and then but it is still a nuisance. This time though, my new password isn't working so i am having to go through the recovery process.

    My question though is whether the gmail team care that my name is Jack and i have an email account that i am wanting to recover under a different name. I don't do anything illegal, but I am guessing they won't approve of me having an email account under a fake name so I am wondering if it is worth going through the recovery process if they are just going to say no anyway. I was hoping someone on here had done it and was able to say
