Changing your email password on your iPhone is an essential step to ensure the security of your account. Whether you suspect that someone else knows your password or you simply want to update it regularly, it’s a good practice to change your email password periodically. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of changing your email password on an iPhone.
Step 1: Open the Settings App
To begin, locate and tap on the “Settings” app icon on your iPhone’s home screen. The Settings app is represented by a gear-shaped icon and is usually found on the first page of apps.
Step 2: Scroll Down and Tap on “Passwords & Accounts”
Once you have opened the Settings app, scroll down until you find the “Passwords & Accounts” option. This option is typically located in the second section of settings.
Step 3: Tap on “Website & App Passwords”
In the “Passwords & Accounts” section, look for and tap on the “Website & App Passwords” option. You may need to authenticate using Touch ID, Face ID, or your device passcode.
Step 4: Find and Select Your Email Account
You will now see a list of websites and apps with saved passwords. Scroll through the list or use the search bar at the top to find and select your email account.
Step 5: Change Your Password
Once you have selected your email account, you will see a screen displaying details about that account’s password. Tap on the field that shows your current password.
Note: If you do not see a field with your current password, it means that iOS does not have access to it. In this case, you will need to change your email password using a different method, such as through your email provider’s website.
After tapping on the current password field, a pop-up will appear asking if you want to change the password. Tap “Change Password” to proceed.
You will then be prompted to enter your new password. Make sure to create a strong and unique password that is not easily guessable. You can use a combination of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters to enhance the security of your new password.
Once you have entered your new password, tap “Done” or “Save” to confirm the changes. Your email account’s password has now been successfully changed on your iPhone.
In this tutorial, we have walked you through the step-by-step process of changing your email password on an iPhone. It is important to regularly update your passwords to protect your personal information and maintain the security of your online accounts. By following these simple steps, you can easily change your email password and ensure that only authorized individuals have access to your account.
Remember: Changing your email password on your iPhone does not affect the passwords saved on other devices or applications. If you use the same email account on multiple devices or apps, make sure to update the password on each device or application separately.
