i used to see in websites both the usage, "forget password?" and "Forgot password?", am doubtful..which one is rite? plse giv a reply
"Forget (your) password?" is correct.
Otherwise, the question is, "Have you forgotten your password?" which should be abbreviated to, "Forgotten your password?"
But English is mangled on the Net, so you also find "Forgot password?"
mangle : severely mutilate, disfigure, or damage by cutting, tearing, or crushing : "The car was mangled almost beyond recognition."
figurative use: "He was mangling a Chopin waltz on the piano."

David, tn wht abt forgot password? in ur opinion cant we use it?
The Net and the use of language thereon is a law unto itself!
I pointed out what is grammatically correct and why. But what web designers choose to use, 'forget' or 'forgot', is totally up to them. They do it for maximum brevity and economy of words, just as long as people 'know' what they mean.
Thanks a lot david
