Your security online is only as good as your password. To make sure your online accounts are safe and accessible by you and only you, switching up your password regularly is a great idea. Making sure your passwords are regularly updated will highly decrease the chances of an attacker decyphering your password. Moreover, learn to figure out which passwords are more important to you. One or more of your accounts, if hacked, can lead to all your subsequent social media accounts being hacked. This might include your Gmail password or Google account password, something people often use for signing up on other services like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn among others.

Enter your old and new passwords in the columns that follow. You will be asked to put in your new password twice, to avoid any mistakes. Make sure that you enter the exact same new password in both the columns.
Moreover, make sure its something you will remember, as you won’t be able to log into Google easily without it in the future. Once your new password is set, click ‘Change Password’ and you should be done.
