Change Gmail Password
If you want to know to change Gmail password in your Gmail account, it’s a good idea to do it more than once in a while. Gmail accounts continually get hacked, and you have to change your password every time to make sure your friends don’t get penis enlargement emails coming from your account.
Things you’ll need:
- Gmail account
- Internet connection
- Go to http://www.google.com/gmail.
- Log into your Gmail account with your username and password.
- Navigate to the top right of the page. You’ll see a little circular gear icon right next to your name in the right corner. Click this gear and select “Account settings.” This will open a new tab in your browser.
- Select “Changing your password.” This is found under the “Security” subheading on the “Account settings page” when you go to change your Gmail password.
- Input your current password into the “Current password” field on the page that follows. Alternately, you can answer one of the security questions you made when you created your Gmail password and account the first time around.
- Input a new password in both “New password” fields. The “Password strength” indicator on the right of the text fields gives you an idea of how likely your new password will be for a hacker to guess or try with his hacking software. So come up with a strong password! Don’t make it the name of your pet, your favorite porn star or anything that anyone who knows about you could guess. Make it a mixture of letters, numbers, special characters and capitals.
- Click “Save” to save changes to your new Gmail password.
- Save your new password somewhere safe. Don’t lose it! Save it someplace where others won’t have access to it.
