Pandora can be used without an account, so you may not ever have to deal with changing your Pandora account password for security reasons. If you have a Pandora account, though, it may not be a bad idea to give it as strong a password as you can. This makes sure that other people can't get in and mess with your preferences, snoop on your personal information, or take advantage of the Pandora One subscription that's being paid for by YOU (if you have one). So if you're looking to upgrade the password on your Pandora account, this lesson will show you what to do.
(P.S. If you want some tips on making better passwords, see our tutorial that will teach you how to make strong passwords.)
To change your Pandora password:
1. Log into your Pandora account.
If you need some help remembering how to do this, the first section of our How to Use Pandora tutorial will explain what you need to do.
2. Click on your email address, and select "Settings" from the drop-down menu.
Clicking on your email address gives you access to your settings and profile, Pandora's help section, and the ability to log out of your Pandora account. For our purposes, click Settings.
3. Select your "Account" settings, click in the box labelled "Password, delete your old password, and type in a new one.
You should automatically be taken to the Account section of your settings; click Account if you get lost to come back to this screen. Next, click inside the box labelled "Password" at the end of the dots that stand in for your password, and press the "Backspace" key on your keyboard until your password is gone. Then, simply type in a new password that you would like to use to protect your Pandora account. Remember, it has to be at least six characters long!
4. Click "Save Changes" at the bottom of the screen to save your new password.
Scroll to the bottom of your "Settings" screen, and you should see a Save Changes button. Click this button to save all changes that you have currently made to your Account settings, including the new password that you picked.
That's how to change your Pandora password if you want a stronger one! Ifyou have forgotten the password to your Pandora account instead, and want to get back in, we will show you how in our next tutorial on how to reset your Pandora password.
