Every time I use the launcher it changes my account password. It does not work. I downloaded it form here and use it on my MacBook. As soon as I try to login on the launcher it will tell me my account info is invalid and then I check the same password on the default launcher and it tells me the same. I go online and find it has changed my password. Do not use this launcher!

That has nothing to do with the Technic launcher. That's you forgetting your password or your account was already compromised. However if you don't believe me you can view the entirety of the launcher's source code at these locations:

https://github.com/TechnicPack/LauncherV3

https://github.com/TechnicPack/LauncherCore

https://github.com/TechnicPack/LauncherUICore

https://github.com/TechnicPack/MinecraftCore

More specifically you can view the code related to logging in here:

If it wasn't for the fact that I have changed my password and security questions several times (all of which needing to be done after logging into the launcher) I would agree with you. But I can log in and out of MineCraft with the default launcher over and over. The moment I type it into the Technic Launcher, I immediately have to change everything because my details are incorrect. Then, when I go back to the default launcher to try again and confirm I am using the proper information, it will also tell me I am incorrect and then I need to once again reset my account info. I downloaded the launcher from this site as well so it could not have been a compromised version of the download. I would actually like to look at the source code sometime if I ever have time just because I am always intrigued by code and am currently learning how to code in a few languages for my future so I actually really appreciate the links! Perhaps the Launcher was out of date but even that would not make sense as to why my password is only changed whenever I log into the Technic Launcher and never the default launcher.

take into account that there are hundreds of thousands of people playing with the launcher, ever since it launched back in 2011. The launcher was open source to the public from day one.

There were plenty of programmers back in those days as there are now. If they had seen anything that would seem suspicious, Technic would be under the gigantic magnifying glass of the Internet.
