Update: I often forget my BDO Internet Banking password because BDO requires password change from time to time, not allowing previously used passwords to be used again. I have a tip to share regarding the online password reset system (“Forgot Password” link) of BDO Internet Banking: If you are 100% sure that all your entered information is correct during password reset, try adding two zeros (00) before your 10-digit account number, so something like 001234567891. The online password reset of BDO always failed when I tried to use it so phoning them had always been my option. It’s the option I prefer less because I do not like talking. After my most recent phone reset I took the time to check all details recorded in my BDO Internet Banking account, and found out that my 10-digit account number in their database is preceded by two zeroes.
I was having a hard time recalling my BDO (Banco de Oro) Internet Banking account password and made a mistake twice and my account got locked out. If I remember correctly it had to be three times before the BDO online account gets locked out.
I have had this problem before and I got in touch with BDO support. Following is the response that I received from them. I’m gonna have to refer to this again to get my BDO Internet Banking account unlocked.
User will automatically be locked out by the BDO Internet Banking system
after the prescribed number of erroneous tries attempted by the user.

I tried resetting my password using BDO’s Forgot Password System on their website, but without success. The system won’t accept the info I entered, stating that some were incorrect.
So I decided to just call BDO Contact Center hotline. I followed the voice prompt – pressed 1 as a Philippines resident, and then pressed 9 for my Internet Banking / Telephone Pin Reset concern.
The conversation between me and the agent was brief. First thing she asked was my name and then the bank account number enrolled in the BDO Internet Banking account whose password I want reset. Then she asked me to wait for a few minutes so she could lookup the information in my account.
She asked me certain information so she could verify that I am the owner of the BDO Internet Banking account, and they are: My mother’s maiden name, my birthday, my home address, and my email address. (I hope I didn’t miss typing any)
After the verification, the BDO agent informed me that I am going to receive an email within 10-15 minutes containing the temporary password that I should use to login and change my password. This temporary password expires after 72 hours.
