Changing Your WordPress Password

passwords-hand

Last week we looked at how you could change your WordPress username.  As promised we will look at how to change your WordPress password this week. Believe it or not changing your password is easier than changing your username!

To change your password your need to login to your WordPress site and on the left hand panel you need to select Users >> Your Profile:

 

users-password

 

Once in “Your Profile” you will need to scroll down until you find the “Account Management” section which should look like…

 

generate-password

 

You can either generate your own password or alternatively WordPress will generate a strong password for you as shown below:

 

WordPress-password

 

If you do choose your own password do make sure that you choose a strong password. WordPress will show you how strong your password is.  Copy and store the password safely before selecting “Upate Profile“. You’re done… told you it was easier than changing your username!
