How to test

  2. Log out and then try to log in with the old password.
  3. Try other wrong credentials, such as non-existing users and wrong passwords.
  4. Log in with the new password.
  5. Change the password back.
  6. Try entering mismatched passwords while doing so.

Expected Results

Logging in with a wrong password should produce a clear error message. The user should be presented with a clear error when the password is mismatched or inappropriate.
