Authentication

When you login with your username and password, DMOZ identifies you to the system and ensures your personalized profile settings are remembered.

What is My Password?

Unless you have changed it since, your password will be the one you specified when you applied to become an editor

I Can't Remember My Password, What Can I Do?

Use the Forgot Password feature. A message containing a link to verify your account will be sent to the email address we have on file for you. You can then click on that link to set up your new password.

How Can I Change My Password?

Simply go to the change password form (linked from your dashboard), and follow the instructions. Passwords are based on the ASCII character set, and your new password should contain a minimum of eight (8) characters and maximum of 16 characters, at least one (1) letter, and at least one (1) non-letter character (this can be a numeral or any ASCII special character). Note: All DMOZ 2.0 passwords are case-sensitive.

Where's the Logout Option?

Due to the authentication method used by DMOZ, you are automatically logged out when you close all active browser windows at the end of a session. Therefore you won't need to specifically log out.
