Change your WordPress Password from the Dashboard

by | Jun 20, 2022 | 0 comments

If you can login to you WordPress dashboard, you can easily change your own password from the ‘Edit My Profile’ screen. You may want to do this if your password has been guessed, for example.

Login to your WordPress Website

Your login screen is usually located at [your-domain]/wp-admin - eg http://www.example.com/wp-admin

Navigate to your Profile

Your profile can be accessed from the menu bar along the top of the screen.
  • Select your username. This might say "Howdy (username)", "Hi (username)" or something else, spending on the language your website uses
  • In the dropdown menu that appears select "Edit profile"
  • Set a New Password

    Within your profile page:
  • scroll down to the "Account Management" section
  • select the "Generate New Password" button - this will suggest a strong password, but you can overwrite this with a password of your choice
  • Don't forget to click the "Update" button
  • Unable to Login?

    If you are no longer able to login to your WordPress website, you can use the Forgot Password Link. See the article below.
