Change the password of your account instantly as password changing is the most appropriate way to secure your Google account. As if someone has used your account accessed your account there are chances that it can happen again, so instantly change the password and choose a password which is complex in nature and cannot be accessed easily.

Password changing is very genuine as our Gmail account is been used in most of the places over the web. For security reasons, one should keep changing the password of his/her Gmail account as there are so many emails present in your Gmail which might be not shareable with other and changing your password within a decent period of times as it also reduces the chances of accounts being hacked.

You can change your Gmail account password easily by following these step:
  • At first open Gmail on your web browser with your phone/tablet/laptop etc.
  • Go to the settings of your account.

  • Then go the change account settings.
  • After that tap on change password.

  •  You will be demanded to re-enter your current password just to verify it’s you who is changing the password.
  • After entering that you will be asked to enter your new password twice and your Gmail account password will get changed.
