Losing your WordPress password shouldn’t mean losing access to your site. The WordPress login screen offers a helpful feature for such situations. Here’s how to reset your password:

  2. Below the login fields, you will find a link labeled Lost your password? – click this link.

Enter the username or email associated with your WordPress account and click Get New Password.

After submitting your details, WordPress will send a password reset link to your email. Click the link in your email. This will redirect you to a page where you can set a new WordPress password and regain access to the backend of your website.

Remember to choose a strong password to avoid login problems in the future. Consider saving your new password in a safe place, so you don’t forget it later.

WordPress Login Tips

A secure WordPress login page can help prevent potential attacks on your site. Here are important tips to increase the security and convenience of your WordPress login:

  • Change login URL – increase security by changing the default WordPress login URL using a plugin like WPS Hide Login. This makes it difficult for unauthorized WordPress users to find the login page.
  • Implement two-factor authentication (2FA) – add an extra layer of security to WordPress with 2FA. Enable this feature using a security plugin such as Wordfence.
  • Enable Remember Me Option – enable longer sessions and reduce the need to log in frequently by using the Remember Me option on the login page. However, make sure that other users cannot access the device you are using.
  • Limit login attempts – security plugins can block access to your WordPress site after a certain number of failed attempts. This is an important protection against brute force attacks.
  • Update passwords regularly – use strong passwords and update them often. This is especially important for WordPress sites with many users.

That’s all for this quick WordPress tip! Remember to note down the login details you used when setting up your WordPress site, and with the steps above you will always be able to log in to your WordPress dashboard.
