For the sake of security and to avoid any hacking problems, it is advisable to regularly change the passwords of your mailboxes and other accounts on websites. We explain step by step how to change your Gmail password.
This can also be useful if you've forgotten it or can't log in to your Google account.
First of all, note that if you change your Gmail password, the change will also be made for all Google services that you eventually use (Youtube, Google…)
If you know your password
In case you remember your current password, just log in to your Gmail box, and click on the "account setting" tab. Then click "Password." You will then enter your current password before informing the new one twice to make sure you don't make a mistake. That's all!You won't be able to choose a password you've already used in the past year. You can insert capital letters, numbers and symbols (O.K., $, , etc.). It's even recommended for optimal security.Be sure to use an expression known to you alone, which will not be too easy to find for a pirate. So avoid your date of birth, your credit card code, your last name… And try as much as possible to choose a different password for each of your accounts.
Passwords too simple (azertyuio, 12345678, …) you will be refused anyway.
