How do I reset my password?

If you're logged out of your account and you can't remember your password:

You can request a new password by clicking the Forgot your password? link on the Facebook login page. We'll send you an email with a link to reset your password.

If you're logged into your account:

  1. Click at the top right of any Facebook page and select Settings
  2. Click on the Password section
  3. Enter your current password and a new password and save your changes

Password Tips:

  • Use a different password than the ones you use for other sites or services
  • Make sure your password is long and strong: use a combination of at least 6 numbers, letters and punctuation marks
  • Don't use words found in the dictionary
