How to Reset Your Hulu Password

We all forget sometimes.  Passwords are an especially big culprit for getting lost in the folds of our brains, what with all their letters, numbers, symbols, and whether they're in the right order or not.  So don't feel bad if you end up getting locked out of your Hulu account at some point because you can't remember your password for it.  Just stay calm and follow these instructions for resetting your password.

You may also want to follow these instructions if you suspect that someone has gained unauthorized access to your Hulu account and is using it without your permission.
