Password Reset

Without a password manager, it can be hard to keep track of all of your logins. If you've forgotten your password for your WordPress user on your website you can quickly reset it without requiring any support from your support team.

Time needed: 2 minutes.

If you've forgotten your WordPress password you can quickly reset it via the inbuilt password reset option.

  1. Navigate To The WordPress Login Page

    Navigate to your WordPress login page. This is commonly www.yourwebsite.com/wp-admin/ or www.yourwebsite.com/wp-login.php. If neither of these options brings up your login page your site may have been configured to use a different URL, in this case, reach out to your web support team.WordPress Login Screen
