How do I retrieve my password?

You are here:

First, go to the login screen of your WordPress blog. The login page of your WordPress blog is located at

http://www.example.com/login/

Replace, www.example.com with your website address. Your WordPress login screen has a Lost your password? link just below the login form.

Click on Lost your password? link. This will take you to another page where you will be asked to provide your WordPress username or email address.

Enter the username you use to log into your WordPress blog. You can also provide the email address you have used during the installation or registration on your WordPress blog. After entering the username or email address, click the Get New Password button.

Once you have entered a valid username or email address, WordPress will send an email to the email address associated with that account. It will also show you “Check your e-mail for the confirmation link” notification on the login screen.

Check your email inbox, there will be an email with the subject [Your Blog Title] Password Reset. Wait for a few minutes if you do not immediately see the email in your inbox. If you still do not see an email, then check your Spam or Junk Mail folder.

When you get the email, it will have a message similar to the following:

Someone requested that the password be reset for the following account:

http://www.your-website-url.com/

Username: your-username

If this was a mistake, just ignore this email and nothing will happen.

To reset your password, visit the following address:

Click on the second link to reset your password. This link will take you back to your website and will allow you to enter a new password for your WordPress account.

WordPress will automatically generate a strong password for you. You can change that to use your own strong password. The strength indicator bar will also let you know the strength of your password. WordPress will let you set a weak password, but it is recommended that you choose a strong password.

A strong password is more than 8 characters long, contains both upper and lower case letters, with numbers, and special characters like ! ” ? $ % ^ &.

Once you have entered a password, press the Reset password button. You will see a notification “Your password has been reset. Log in”</e
