I have a background in IT and the rumours that Garmin was hacked and is possibly dealing with a ransomware attack creates all sorts of red flags. Hopefully they just had a server crash… but regardless I’d say it’s always a good time to review those Strava, TP, Wahoo, Sufferfest account passwords and make sure they are all unique.
How do you change your password in Sufferfest? I couldn’t find where to do it. Txs,.
In the forum you can click on your image -choose preferences and then account and you’ll see an option to reset your password. There might be a faster way. But remember your forum password and Sufferfest account password are different (I think?!?). So you’ll want to make sure both are unique / and if I can recommend - use the 2 factor authentication option offered for the forum password - for piece of mind.
Keep the forum for sufferlandrians not couchlandrians.
@Vansover I think the best way to reset your password for The Sufferfest app - is to go to the login page for The Sufferfest using a web browser - and rather than log in choose ‘forgot password’ and a link will be sent to your email address registered to your Sufferfest account that allows you to reset you password.
However, I don’t want to assume I know better than Sufferfest tech support. Might be better to contact them directly.
+1 on having unique passwords for every site and setting up two-factor authentication.
I use a password manager, which makes generating new passwords very easy, and means that I don’t have to remember any of them. In this current context, it means that my Garmin account may be compromised, but no other account is affected.
@DancingCyclist @Vansover Yep, the only way at present to reset your password is to click on the “forgot password” link at login - you should then be sent an email where you’ll be able to then reset your password. Cheers!
There was a post on the Sailing Anarchy forums about Garmin having GPS issues right now. Whatever they are, it’s creating havoc with users.
TrainingPeaks actually has something to that effect on their splash page and in mirroring email. But, yeah, a good time to check those passwords to make sure it’s not the same kind of thing an idiot would put on his luggage.
