Trouble changing your password and seeing a "request failed" message? This FAQ has your back. If you've tried various iterations without success, it might be a character combo issue. We'll guide you through a quick resolution, so you can update your password hassle-free.
"I can't seem to get a password change to take, and I've tried many iterations that meet the criteria. It just keeps saying request failed."
If you are experiencing difficulty changing your password and consistently receive a "request failed" message, there might be specific character combinations causing issues. Follow these steps to resolve the problem:
- Avoid Sequential Special Characters
- Some systems may not accept certain character combinations, especially when they are sequential. For example, using multiple exclamation points ("!!") consecutively might cause the password change to fail. Try using a different combination of characters.
- Choose a Different Password
- Select a new password that doesn't include the problematic character combinations. Opt for a mix of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters, ensuring they are not placed in a predictable sequence.
- Use a Variety of Characters
- Ensure your password is diverse and includes a combination of letters, numbers, and special characters. This helps enhance security and reduces the likelihood of encountering issues during the password change process.
- Check System Requirements
- Verify that your chosen password meets the system's requirements, such as minimum length, mandatory inclusion of special characters, or restrictions on certain character sequences.
- Clear Browser Cache
- Sometimes, browser cache issues can interfere with the password change process. Clear your browser cache and attempt the password change again.
