Did you forget the password to your Techboomers account? If so, then there’s no need to fear! We have a system in place that lets you reset your password through an email that we send to you. Here’s how it works:
When the log in window appears, click Forgot Your Password?
Click in the box labelled “Email” and type in your email address, and then click Send Me Reset Password Instructions. We will send you an email that contains a hyperlink that will let you reset your password.
Go to your email service and log in. Look for the email from us labelled “Techboomers Password Reset” and click it to open it.
Once you have the email open, click the blue hyperlink inside that says Reset My Password.
You will be taken to a screen where you can reset your password. Click in the box labelled “Enter New Password” and type in a new password that you would like to use to secure your Techboomers account. Then, click in the box labelled “Confirm New Password” and type in a copy of the password that you just picked. Finish up by clicking Change My Password.
There you go! Your password for your Techboomers account is reset, and you should be able to access your Techboomers account again! And if you need some help remembering your password in the future, have a look at our How to Manage Passwords article for some tips.
All content on Techboomers.com is free to access for everyone, so we’ll never ask you for your personal financial information when you sign up for an account. This means that you can safely keep this information to yourself. However, we do ask you for your name and email address, which are things that you may not want ending up in the hands of a troublemaker looking to steal personal information.
Though the risk of that happening is slim (at least on our website), you can make it even slimmer by changing your password to one that’s difficult to decipher. If you need some tips on how to do that, check out our How to Make a Strong Password tutorial.

Techboomers has been designed with ease of use in mind, so there are relatively few settings to adjust. You can, however, change your name as it appears in our database (and in your newsletter emails). You can also change the email address that you use to sign into Techboomers with (and that we use to send you our newsletter), as well as the password for your account.
If you want to change your name as it appears in the Techboomers database (and in our newsletter emails to you), click in the left box underneath “Change Name” and type in your first name as you want it to appear (you may need to press the “Backspace” key until your incorrect name disappears first). Do the same thing with the right box, except type in your last name as you want it to appear, instead. Then click Update Name.
If you want to change the email address that you use to log into Techboomers (and receive our weekly newsletters), click in the box below “Change Email Address” and type in your new email address (you may need to use the “Backspace” key to get rid of the old one first). Then click Update Email Address.
If you want to change the password that protects your Techboomers account, scroll down to the “Change Password” section. First, click the box labelled “Enter Old Password” and type in your current password. Then, click in the box labelled “Enter New Password” and type in a new password that you’d like to use. Then, click in the box labelled “Confirm New Password” and type in a copy of the new password that you picked. Finish up by clicking Change Password.
