I was playing with account creation with in MIST and i find one account always saying "password wrong" when i try to transfer ether to other accounts. It can still receive ether though.

I use same password for all accounts in MIST, so I am 99.9% sure password is the regular password i use.

  • If there is such a bug that would have been notified by now. Its a big community my friend. On the other hand, its too silly to have a password bug in any application. :D – niksmac Jun 15 '17 at 3:44
  • Make sure you have download from the offical page github.com/ethereum/mist/releases, if you think that it might be a regression you can try with a previous version. OTOH You should not reuse passwords it is bad security practice. – Ismael Jun 15 '17 at 4:34
  • I guess i have to spend a day on password cracking. @Ismael I agree on password reuse but then i can't even get that right :) – Mano Jun 19 '17 at 9:40

    I have used pyethrecover to recover my password. Apparently i have added an extra random character at the end. – Mano Jun 19 '17 at 11:40

Same thing happened to me. Happened when I upgraded to 0.8.10 and changed computers to a new one and imported the key. I am 100% certain it was the correct password because I had it written down. Not to mention I've sent ether from it on several occasions, and recently too. Lost everything. Goodluck - doesn't seem like anyone can and/or will help.

  • Hi there. Please see the final comment under the question - the user resolved their issue :-) – Richard Horrocks Jul 17 '17 at 19:39
  • If you wrote your password down, could you have possibly made a transcription error? – Richard Horrocks Jul 17 '17 at 19:39
  • Another idea: if your password contains special characters, sometimes those characters are different between different keyboard layouts. If your machine has for some reason switched layouts (mine used to do it all the time... UK->US layout), you might not be typing in what you think you're typing. – Richard Horrocks Jul 17 '17 at 19:40
  • Please Fort9520 leave this information as an comment since this is not an answer to the question (in the future). – xgabrielx Jul 18 '17 at 6:42
