    I've had to reset my password several times now and I swear I keep setting it to the same thing. It will work several times and then eventually tell me I'm entering the wrong password. Is anyone else experiencing this?

      Well, I'm still having issues. When I came to HubPages just now I was asked to sign in. Is it even normal to be asked so often? When I first signed up with HP, I don't recall having to log in at all if I came to the site regularly. Anyway, my usual password didn't work once again. I tried changing browsers to Chrome and it didn't work still. Yesterday I emptied my cache of user names and passwords in hopes that would do something, but nope.

      So I went through the process to reset it, once again, to the same one I've been using all along.

      Yesterday I couldn't log in on my iPhone app, so I tried closing the app (not just clicking away from it, but actually closing it all together), and then reopened it and my password worked after that.

      After my first email from HubPages admin, telling me to "write down my password so I won't forget it", I emailed them twice and haven't heard back. I'm not forgetting my password. It just doesn't work randomly . . . and more often than not.
