Coming back to the Sage Accounting software, you may very well understand the trouble you will be in if you forget the password of Sage someday (or a password for any Sage data file, for that matter!). 

This is the reason why we receive many queries related to passwords from Sage users. Some of them asked us whether they can add the ‘Forget Password’ option on the Sage log in screen, so that it becomes easier for them to retrieve the password if they forget it someday. In this blog, we are going to answer this query. We will also discuss other important matters related to passwords in Sage.

How to add the ‘Forgot Password’ as an option on the Login Screen?

As a Sage user, you cannot add the ‘Forgot Password’ option on the Sage Login screen. An admin or developer cannot add this option either for the Sage users as this functionality just does not exist. If you forget the password, you will need to email the Admin to send you a temporary password, every time you log in. You can also reset your password in Sage 50.

Procedure to Reset the Password in Sage 50

Please follow the steps given below-

  • Open the Sage 50 application
  • Click on Sign in
  • Now click on the Forgot your password link.
  • On the next screen, provide the email address registered with your Sage account 
  • Next, complete the Captcha security check.
  • Type in the Code received on the email address specified before
  • Click on Continue.

Please Note: If you have not received the email on time, there may be an issue with your mail server and it may be blocking automated emails (You will not find such issues usually with web-based email platforms such as Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, etc). if such an issue arises, please contact the administrator of your mail server or the email provider and ask them to allow emails sent from the domain.

  • Sign in again and enter the password you have changed to.
