It’s a good idea to change your WordPress password from time to time, especially if you don’t have a strong password or if you’ve recently been hacked.

How to Change Your Password:

  1. Log-in to your WordPress Admin Account. Usually this is done by adding /wp-admin at the end of your domain name, for example I would type
  2. At the log-in screen, enter your current user name and password
  3. Once logged-in to your WordPress dashboard, scroll down to “Users” and click on “All Users”

Password Dos and Donts

  • Stop using passwords you can “remember” – these are not secure – they should be ridiculously long and weird like the password you just generated.
  • Make sure your password has combinations of letters, numbers and symbols and is at least 8 – 12 characters in length
  • Don’t the same password anywhere else
  • Never email your password to someone – this is not secure
  • Get in the habit of changing your passwords often
