How can I change my password?
Updated February 2015
If you log in from a different device without first logging out of the other, you will get a pop up screen telling you to change your password.
However, in fine print below the change option you can click on -skip for now- and use your old log in information.
If you are using a mobile device, open the facebook app, and tap the Menu button in the top right. It looks like this (just 3 horizontal bars)
Then scroll down quite a ways, and tap Account Settings.
Then tap General as shown below
Then tap Password as shown below
If you are using a computer, in the top right corner of your browser, click on the menu with a picture of a lock. Then click on Settings.
Then click on the Edit link to the right of where is says "Password"
Then enter your old password, and your new password 2 times.
Note: you must know your old password in order to change it.
