How to change your Instagram password or reset it

Knowing how to modify or reset your Instagram password is a crucial step in maintaining your account’s security. Even though Instagram is perhaps less of a target for hackers because it doesn’t keep credit card information, it’s generally a good idea to update all passwords from time to time (and ideally use one of the best password managers).

Here’s how to change or reset your Instagram password, regardless of whether your login was made public due to a data breach, you want to increase security (don’t use the same password across sites!), or you simply forgot what you chose the first time.

Please take note that these directions are just for users of independent logins. You can login in using your Facebook credentials since its acquisition in 2012, but if you do that, you should update your password on Facebook.

What can I do if I forgot my Instagram password?

You may reset your password using your email address, phone number, or Facebook account if you can’t remember it. Open the Instagram app to get more assistance if you are unable to reset your password in this manner.
Changing your password using your Facebook, email, or phone number
Open the Instagram app first, then reset your password. After that:
Android app for Instagram
  • On the login screen, tap Get help logging in below login.
  • Enter username, email, or phone, or tap Log in with Facebook.
  • Tap Next, and follow the on-screen instructions.
Instagram app for iPhone:
  • On the login screen, tap Forgot password above login.
  • Tap Username or Phone.
  • Enter your email address, username or phone number, then tap Next.
