I completed the transfer, but I have forgotten my PlayOnline password.

When editing the password for a PlayOnline ID that has already been transferred, you are not required to enter the ‘Current Password’ and can reset your password by simply entering a new one.

If you lose/forget your PlayOnline password after transferring accounts, then please login to the Square Enix Account Management System and reset your PlayOnline password from there.
