Password required to update settings, but I use GitHub OAuth

Hi! :wave:

I would like to change my handle and I am asked for my password. The problem is, I signed up through GitHub OAuth. So, I don’t have any password.

Is there a way to change authentication method from GitHub OAuth to email?

Have a nice weekend everyone! :wink:

I believe there’s a discussion about it here

The proposed workaround is to click on forgot password and take it from there. I’m not sure if it still works, but it worked fine few months ago when i wanted to change my handle.

Edit: Wait, you want to change the handle or the auth method?

Thank you very much!

It worked perfectly. Contrary to the message in the settings (quote below), my public solutions did not break. :ok_hand:

We recommend only changing your handle in rare circumstances as public solution links will break, and it is confusing for mentors.

Have a nice day! :rocket:
