I assigned a password to my profile, and now I forgot it. Is there a way I can enter my profile or retrieve my password?

    From the Anki2 manual (
    It’s possible to assign a password to your profile by going to Anki’s preferences window. Your collection is not encrypted, and people can still tamper with the file if they locate it on your hard disk.

    That is, if you forgot your password it should be sufficient to delete the file Documents/Anki/prefs.db and then run Anki.

    Preferences will be reset by doing this so you will need to login the next time you go to sync and you may want to redefine preferences you customized before (Tools -> Preferences).
