To disable authentication (to reset your username or password) you will need need to edit config.xml which will be inside the AppData Directory.

  1. Open config.xml in a text editor
  2. Find the authentication method line (will be <AuthenticationMethod>Basic</AuthenticationMethod> or <AuthenticationMethod>Forms</AuthenticationMethod>
  3. Change the AuthenticationMethod line to <AuthenticationMethod>None</AuthenticationMethod>
  4. Restart Sonarr
  5. Sonarr will now be accessible without a password, you should go the Settings: General in the Sonarr UI and set your username and password
