Change your password

Change or update your email password

There are two places you can change or update your email account password: in Outlook and with your email provider (for example, Office 365, Gmail, Yahoo, iCloud, or Xfinity). You may need to change your password one or both places.

Why are there two places to change my password?

There are two things you need in order to access your email.

An email account with an email provider such as Office 365, Gmail, iCloud, or a corporate Exchange server

A program that can display your email messages and allow you to read, reply to, and organize these email messages

When should I change my password with my email provider?

Change your password when:

You think someone has stolen or gained access to your email account password

Your email provider has sent you a password reset link

You forgot your email account password

Change your password with your email provider

See the following sections for instructions on changing your email account password for several major email providers. If your email account provider isn’t listed, contact your admin or the email provider’s help desk.

Go to the Gmail website.

Click your picture in the upper right corner of the screen, then select My Account.

Click Sign-in & security.

Scroll down to Signing in to Google. There you can change your password and then select App passwords to generate a unique password to enter into Outlook 2016, Outlook 2013, and Outlook 2010. Gmail requires the use of two-factor authentication and an app password to check your email in Outlook. For more information, see Set up two-factor authentication for Gmail.

Go to the Yahoo website.

Click your name or picture in the upper right corner of the screen, then select Account Info. You may need to click the name of your account on the next screen.

Follow the prompts to select your account name and enter your existing password. If you forgot your password, click I forgot my password.

On the left side of the screen, click Account security, then click Change password and follow the prompts.

When you’re done, scroll down to verify that Two-step verification is on, then click Manage app passwords. For more information about generating a unique password to enter into Outlook 2016, 2013, and 2010, see Set up two-factor authentication for Yahoo.

Go to the Apple ID website.

Enter your Apple ID and Password and then click the arrow. If you forgot your password, click Forgot Apple ID or password? and follow the prompts.

If iCloud requires you to enter a Two-Factor Authentication code, obtain the code from one of your other Apple devices and enter the six digits, then click Trust when iCloud asks you to trust this browser.

Click the drop-down next to your name and picture in the upper right corner of the screen.

At the top of the next screen, click Manage under Apple ID. You may need to enter your Apple ID and password again.

Under Security, click Change Password. and follow the prompts.

When you’re done, scroll down to verify that Two-Factor Authentication is on, then click Generate Password under App-Specific Passwords. For more information about generating a unique password to enter into Outlook 2016, 2013, and 2010, see Set up two-factor authentication for iCloud.

Other email accounts will require you to change your email account password on the website for the account provider. For example, to change the password for an Xfinity account, go to the Xfinity website and follow the prompts. Every email account provider has slightly different steps for changing a password.

Update the password stored in Outlook

To update your password in Outlook, use the following steps.

Note: Outlook can’t change the password with your email provider. In other words, if you forget your Outlook.com password, you’ll first have to see the section Change your Outlook.com password to change the password Outlook.com has for your account, then update the password in Outlook for Windows.

There are two possible ways to update your password in Outlook. The specific steps you need to take depend on your version of Outlook and whether you’re an Office 365 subscriber or purchased Outlook as a standalone application.

If you’re an Office 365 subscriber with monthly updates, use the following steps:

In Outlook, choose File > Account Settings > Update Password.

Update the password or app password and click OK.

If you’re an Office 365 subscriber with semi-annual updates or you have Outlook 2019, 2016, 2013, or 2010, or purchased Outlook as a standalone application, use the following steps:

In Outlook, choose File > Account Settings > Account Settings.

Select the email account you want to change, and then choose Change.

In the Change Account window, update your password.

    NOTE: POP and IMAP accounts will not provide this option if your entry point is File > Account Settings > Account Settings. If that is the case go to File > Account Settings > Manage Profiles, Select Emails Accounts, then select the email account you want to change, and then choose Change. In the Change Account window, update your password.

    Select Close after Outlook tests your account settings, then Finish > Close to return to Outlook.

    Does my email account need an app password?

    If you use Outlook to send and receive email from your Gmail, Yahoo, iCloud, Apple, Outlook.com, or @me.com accounts, you may not use your regular email account password to set up these accounts. These email providers may require you to use two-factor authentication and an app password. This is a one-time password that you enter in place of your regular account password when setting up your account for the first time.

    For more information, see the sections on setting up two-factor authentication for Gmail, Yahoo, and iCloud.

    To update your password in Outlook for Mac, use the following steps.

    On the Tools tab, select Accounts.

    In the left pane, select the account you want to change the password for.

    In the right pane, enter a new password in the Password box.

    Close the Accounts window. Outlook will save the password automatically.

    Change or reset the password of a macOS user account

    You can change the password that you use to log in to your Mac, or reset the password if you don’t remember it.

    The password of your macOS user account is also known as your login password. It’s the password that you use to log in to your Mac and make certain changes, such as installing software.

    Change your password

    If you know your password and can use it to log in to your account, you can change your password in Users & Groups preferences:

    1. Choose System Preferences from the Apple menu, then click Users & Groups.
    2. Select your user name from the list of users.
    3. Click the Change Password button, then follow the onscreen instructions.

    Reset your password

    If you don’t remember your password, or it isn’t working, you might be able to reset it using one of the methods described below. But first try these simpler solutions:

    • Make sure that you’re typing the correct uppercase or lowercase characters. If your keyboard has Caps Lock turned on, the password field shows a Caps Lock symbol .
    • If the password field shows a question mark, click it to display a password hint that might help you to remember.
    • Try to log in without a password. If that works, you can then add a password by following the steps to change your password.
    • Try to log in with the Apple ID password that you use for iCloud. If you just changed that password and the new password isn’t working, try the old password first. If that works, you should be able to use the new password from then on.

    1. Wait up to a minute at the login screen, until you see a message saying that you can use the power button on your Mac to shut down and start up again in Recovery OS. If you don’t see this message, FileVault isn’t on.

    1. Open Keychain Access, which is in the Utilities folder of your Applications folder.
    2. Choose Preferences from the Keychain Access menu, then click the Reset My Default Keychain button in the preferences window. After you enter your new password, Keychain Access creates an empty login keychain with no password. Click OK to confirm.

    Like the Computer Hope forums, most forums allow the user to change their password only through the profile or account settings. However, most companies do not allow you to change your username.

If you need additional help with changing your username or password on another website, we suggest you contact the company or webmaster in control of that website.

    If you cannot access an online account because you do not know the username or password, look for a link on the account login page for retrieving a forgotten username or password. This option may be able to help in determining what your username or password is or help in resetting your account password.

    How to Change Your Password in Windows 10

    Even if you don’t have a treasure map located on your laptop, your Windows 10 password is still very important. If you suspect someone has your password, you’ve been re-using passwords and decide to be safer or simply feel like changing it, Microsoft gives you three different options to go about securing your device. We’ve tested each method and laid out how to change your password in Windows 10 in several simple steps.

    Читать еще:  Учебник по word

    You can always choose a regular new password—we recommend using a combination of letters, numbers and symbols. Usually it’s best if these passwords are at least eight characters long, and although we advise you to use an alphanumeric password format because it’s safer, you can also change your password into a pin or picture that lets you sign in to your Microsoft account quicker. And if you’re trying your best to keep your privacy, make sure you know how to use Chrome’s incognito windows.

    Also, literally keep your eye out for Windows Hello, which allows you to sign in to your account through iris, face, or fingerprint detection. But if you prefer the old-school method, here’s how to change your password on Windows 10.

    To Change / Set a Password

    1. Click the Start button at the bottom left of your screen.

    2. Click Settings from the list to the left.

    3. Select Accounts.

    4. Select Sign-in options from the menu.

    5. Click on Change under Change your account password.

    6. In order to change your password, you have to sign in with your current Microsoft account password. Enter your password in the box. Click Sign in.

    7. Microsoft will send you a new code to change your password through the phone number that is associated with your account. Enter the last four digits of your phone number to verify it is the correct number. Press Enter.

    8. You will receive a code on your phone. Enter the code.

    9. A new page will direct you to enter your old password and then type in a new password. Reenter the new password. Press Enter.

    If you see this message than you successfully changed your password!

    Change Your Password to a PIN

    1. Follow steps 1-4 under To Change Your Current Password above.

    2. Within Sign-in options, click on Add under PIN.

    3. In order to change your password, you have to sign in with your current Microsoft account password. Enter your password in the box. Click Sign in.

    4. Enter a new pin in the first box and reenter it in the second one. Click OK. You can now use this pin to sign into your Microsoft account.

    Change Your Password to a Picture Password

    1. Follow the steps 1-4 under Change Your Current Password above.

    2. Within Sign-in options, click on Add under Picture Password.

    3. Enter your Microsoft account password to verify it’s your account. Click OK.

    4. Click on Choose Picture. Choose a photo from your files.

    5. Click on Use this picture if you like it or click on Choose new picture if you don’t. You can drag your photo to position it however you want.

    6. You will have to set up three gestures that will become part of your picture password. With your cursor, draw lines or circles that coordinate with your photo. I traced three spikes in the crown of this statue of liberty I saw on the streets of New York.

    If you see this message then you successfully created your picture password! This photo will show up when you sign into your Microsoft account. Simply retrace your gestures and you’ll be signed in.
