Notes about Passwords

Always try to select a password both easily remembering for you and toughly decrypted by any other person. Therefore, do not use passwords containing parts of your login, your obvious personal info such as a birthdate, natural sequences of letters and numbers such as "qwerty" or "12345" and so on.

What to Do If I Forgot My Password?

To restore your password, please click on the "Forgot password?" link on the main form, and then follow the instructions provided. The website will provide you a password for your Lycos mail account.

If you feel you lose your password too frequently, maybe some password-keeping software, like Handy Password, can help you keeping all your logins and passwords in security, guarded by just one master key.
