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.

How to Change Your Hulu Password

Even if you have a free Hulu account, you should probably put a strong password on it to keep anyone from getting into it and messing it up or seeing your personal details.  It would be an even greater shame if someone used your Hulu Plus subscription without your permission to watch movies and TV shows for free.

If you think that your Hulu password isn’t up to par, then you can easily change it.  If you need a hand figuring out a good password to use, have a look at our How to Make a Strong Password tutorial (here).

How to change your Hulu password

  1. Go to www.hulu.com in your web browser and log in.
