    Haven't you missed out explaining the next option in meny Contact Type, that one that's called "Account Problems"? How do we use that?

      Thanks for your comment, Jonas.

      The details configured for Account Problems will help users who run into issues while trying to log in, and should be used to provide the required guidance. I will update the content above to include this information.
