The quick and easy way to change your Apple ID Password

Your Apple ID is your key to accessing Apple’s ecosystem’s integrated services, such as the App Store, iCloud, iMessage, FaceTime, and Apple Music. One is also required to set up each new Apple device. If you suspect that your password has been compromised, you should change it immediately. It’s also a good idea to change it every few months to maintain it safe.

When creating a new password, make it at least eight characters long and include at least one number, one uppercase letter, and one lowercase letter. You also cannot use a password from the previous year.

The steps to changing your Apple ID password are as follows. Remember that you can only use these if you know your current password. If you’ve completely forgotten it, you’ll need to go through Apple’s password reset process, which you can access from any of your Apple devices.

Method 1. Using your iOS Device

Step 1. On your iOS device, open the Settings app.



Step 2. Scroll through the setting menu and tap on your name at the top to access the user settings.



Step 3. In the user settings, tap on the ‘Password and Security’ option.



Step 4. In the password and security settings, tap on the change password option.



Step 5. You will be requested to enter your device passcode, followed by a new password and confirmation.

Step 6. Once you are satisfied with your entry, tap on the Change button.

To access Apple features and services, return to the main Settings screen and sign in with your new password.

Method 2. Using your macOS device

Step 1. On your macOS device, open the system preferences app.



Step 2. In the system preferences menu, click on the Apple ID button.



Step 3. In the user profile settings, click on the ‘Password and Security’ option.



Step 4. In the password and security settings, click on the ‘Change Password’ option.



Step 5. Enter the password you use to log in to your Mac.

Step 6. Enter and confirm your new password.

The password for your Apple ID will now be changed and you will have to log in with the new credentials in order to access the features and services.
