Change my WordPress password in the dashboard

You can update your WordPress password from within the dashboard. You must know your current password to use these steps.

Note: If you can’t remember your current password, you can change it with a password reset link.

  1. Sign in to WordPress.
  2. From the left-side menu, select Users and then All Users.
  3. Under Username, find and select your username.
  4. On the Profile page, scroll down until you find the Account Management section.
  5. Select Set New Password.
  6. Enter your new password, or make a note of the automatically generated one.

    Note: Please remember that your website's security is only as good as your password strength. Learn more about creating and securing strong passwords in our How-to video series Website Security Tips and Tricks.

  7. At the bottom of the page, select Update Profile.

Use your new password the next time you sign in to WordPress.
