How to change your Gmail password

Step 2. Click “Settings.”
Step 3. Click “Accounts and Import” tab at the top.
Step 4: In the “Change Account Settings” section, click “Change password.”
Step 5: You’ll be prompted to re-enter your current password to confirm your identity. Next, as seen in the screen pictured below, you’ll need to enter a new password — twice (note that you can’t reuse an old password once you change it).
Your new password must consist of at least eight characters, we would recommend using a mixture of letters (upper and lower case), numbers and special characters for maximum security. Once you satisfy these requirements, just click the blue “Change Password” button, and you’ll be good to go.
