    Did you look in keychain and look for the corresponding date you signed up? It may be listed under a different heading than what you are trying to use for the website login.

    Go to the website and initiate the forgot the password email recovery link process.

    I had trouble a few times over the years with the same problem. I quit trusting keychain and went to using 1Password to generate the password. I then temporarily copy it to Notes before inputting the new password on the site. That way if there was a temporary problem or app glitch, I still have the password. I also use the Paste app, which comes in real handy in day to day use. It is much more powerful and user friendly than the stock clipboard app in MacOS.
