How to change your Twitter account password

Social media platforms are targets for hackers to access and steal personal information, such as passwords, emails, and other sensitive data.

The use of weak passwords (which actually many people do) eg "12345", your name, your phone number, etc, makes it easy for hackers to guess.

It is recommended to regularly change your password to a strong and hard-to-guess password to protect your online privacy and prevent unauthorized access to your account.

If you ever lose your device or it gets stolen, or forget to log out of your social media accounts on a device shared with other people, it's advisable to change your passwords immediately to prevent unauthorized access to your accounts.

However, some people experience challenges when trying to change their account passwords as the process is not always straightforward in some of social media platforms.

In this article, you will learn how to change the password for your Twitter account through your computer browser.
