Reset my WordPress password

If you forget the password for your WordPress site, you can reset it from your WordPress login page by requesting a password reset link. You should enter an email address associated with your WordPress user account to receive the email with the link.

  1. In a browser, go to http://[your WordPress domain name]/wp-admin (for example, http://coolexample.com/wp-admin).
  2. Select the Lost your password? link.
  3. Enter the email address you use for your WordPress user account and then select Get new password.
  4. Check the email account for a message titled Password Reset and select the link in the email text. It will open a password reset page in a new tab.

    Note: If you don't see the password reset email within a few hours, check your spam/junk folder. Also, check the database to see if your email address is saved correctly and update it if necessary.

  5. On the password reset page, in the New password field, enter your new password and select Save password. You can use a password manager of your choice to make sure you don't forget your new password.

You can now sign in to WordPress with your new password.
