Choose my own password?

I've had occasion to reset my VoIP password, but via the control panel I don't get the option to create my own, just to create a random string.
While I don't doubt that this is more secure, I'd much rather select a password of my own choice.

This  used to be possible I think, however Gradwell changed it, I'm assuming due to the volume of compromised accounts they were having to fire fight. If that is the case then I can't see them relaxing things again any time soon.

yes it used be possible, must be at least a couple of years since it changed. the other annoying thing is if you don't record it anywhere you can't retrieve it so have set it up again and change it everywhere.

Re: Choose my own password?

So I noticed, every time I had to use my account to try replicating a problem Wink
Not so much an issue now that I use a password manager.
