How to change your Facebook password?


The majority of people use awkward passwords. If you’re one of them, you should change all of your critical passwords to something more secure—including Facebook, believe it or not.

Someone who has access to your Facebook account has access to a lot of your personal information, can presumably log in to many other websites and services like you, and can even defraud your friends. As a result, you should keep it safe. To change your Facebook password, follow these steps.

On the web

Start by login into Facebook, then select “Settings & Privacy” from the drop-down arrow in the top-right corner. From the menu that appears, select “Settings.” Now go to the left sidebar and click “Security and Login,” then “Change Password” under the Login section.

Enter both your current and new passwords twice. Facebook will inform you if it is too short, weak, or the confirmation does not match. Click “Save Changes” once you’ve created a secure password. You’ll be asked if you want to keep your other devices logged in. Select “Log Out of Other Devices” if you believe your account has been compromised. Otherwise, “Stay Logged In” is a good option.

That’s all; your Facebook password has been changed.

On mobile

On your iPhone, iPad, or Android phone, open the Facebook app and tap the three-line “Menu” button in the bottom-right (iPhone and iPad) or top-right (Android) corner. Tap “Settings” after expanding the “Settings & Privacy” option.

You’re out of luck if you utilize the Facebook app on your Android device. You can’t see the Facebook password you’ve saved on your smartphone in the Facebook app. The only way to recover your Facebook password is to use your computer’s web browser.

If you don’t have access to a computer browser, you may simply “Forgot Password” and regain your Facebook account.

Most online browsers, such as Google Chrome and Firefox, remember all of the passwords you use to log in to multiple websites, including your Facebook login.

To display Facebook passwords in Chrome, follow these steps.

  • On your PC, open Chrome and click the three dots next to the profile symbol in the upper right corner.
  • This will bring up the options menu. To access the settings panel, go to the options menu and select Settings.

  • Locate the Facebook name and click the eye icon to see the password. If you encrypt your device with a password, it may prompt you to input it.

That’s it! This is how you may view the password saved in your Chrome browser on your device for your Facebook account.


Your social media account is your personal space. You shared a lot of sensitive information on Facebook, which might put you at risk at times. It is critical to ensure the security of your account. If you do this, you should also ensure that your Facebook password is really strong and that no one can guess it.

When typing your password anyplace, you’ll constantly notice the warning “do not reveal your password.” So, if you disclose your password to anyone, you risk losing everything you’ve posted on Facebook.

Make sure your social media accounts do not share the same password. Make sure that each social media account is encrypted with a distinct password, whether you’re using one or two.

This was the “how to change Facebook password” instruction. Facebook is a site where you may update your password and other information. If you wish to change your Facebook password as well, follow the procedures outlined above.
