How To Change Facebook Password

What you will learn:

  • This article will show you how to change your Facebook password in a web browser and in the iOS Facebook App (iPhone or iPad).
  • Video Tutorial is below the text portion if you want to skip the article.

Security Tools I Use Online (not required for this tutorial):

  • 1Password ($36/year): My password manager of choice for many years. I highly recommend you stop using Sticky Notes and other non-secure methods to store passwords (email, Apple Notes, Google Docs, etc).
  • Authy (Free): Enable 2-Factor Authentication (2FA) at your favorite sites (Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, Gmail…). This is an incredible app that makes it harder for people to get access into sights that you have 2FA enabled because an extra security step is required to verify your identity.

How To Change Facebook Password (Web-Browser)
