Here is my code:

Username: abhishek
Email: (this IS public) parikh5555@gmail.com

npm WARN adduser Incorrect username or password

npm WARN adduser You can reset your account by visiting: npm WARN adduser

Assuming you have the right username you have probably forgotten your password. From the docs you should use this link to reset.

The full documentation can be found by following this link where you can also register.
