"forgot email address" system

+0
−3

Usually, I was logging out for some reason. Whenever I try to login I get a message "Invalid email or password". Usually, I forgot my email address or password. There's a way to change password if I forgot. But, what if I forgot my email address.

I really forget my email address some time (It might sounds funny to some people. But, I really forget email some time). But, I was thinking if there was a button "forgotten email address". User have to choose username but, that's available publicly so, I think it would be better if user have to guess email address either. They should get 3 (not more than 5) chance. If they put wrong password than, block him for an hour.

If you forget your email address, contact support and we'll be able to assist. Allowing people to guess the email address for an account is not something that can be done securely and in a way that protects user privacy.
