We’re all guilty of using lazy passwords from time to time.

And it’s possible you use a service that warns you if you have a “hacked” password – that cyber-criminals could use to access your account.

Your own account may also have been compromised, so that’s another good reason to change your password.

Whatever the reason, changing your Instagram password is very easy.

How to change your Instagram password

To change your Instagram password, you have two options.

The first is to log out, and then request to reset it from the login screen.

If you’re logged in, you can also do it through Settings.

Tap on your profile picture in the bottom right, to access your profile.

Then tap the Menu icon (three horizontal bars) and then choose Settings (a cogwheel).

Next, tap Security and then choose Password.

Enter your current password and then type in a new password – twice, to make sure you’ve got it right.

Finally, choose Save or the checkmark.

Instagram recommends using a strong password with at least six numbers, letters and punctuation marks – like ! or %.

The more complicated your password, the harder it is for hackers to guess.

If you’ve been logged out of your account and you can’t remember the password, you can reset it.
