Lost Wallet Password Nightmare

Lost the password for my wallet.

Generated a password, forgot to save it in my password manager. Not listed in the generated password history. Not in Windows clipboard history (disabled for added security…good thinking genius)

14 character password with all viable characters and cases, never going to brute force it.

Didn’t export my seed phrase. So annoyed with myself, never made this mistake before.

Not a huge sum enough to cry about but significant enough to berate myself.

Uninstalled the extension, reinstalled and remembered I’d used a hardware wallet for the account.

Imported and set a new password. Hardware wallet saved me!

TLDR; get yourself a hardware wallet and don’t forget to use it!

What do you think?
