  1. In trying to share an article, then a video
    a popup claimed I was using an old password. I tried to change numerous times but code doesn’t come thru via SMS or email. I can’t find a record of a new password which popup says was changed a month ago. It seems someone has locked me out. How to fix?

    1. Did you try to recover your password with mobile or pc? If mobile app, try to use any internet browser available in your phone. If pc, try to clear browser history, cache & cookies or other browser.
