I know, this article may look like a no-brainer. Something like how to change Gmail password should be right on your fingertips. But you will be surprised by just how many people see the Gmail platform as having too many whistles and bells. The only thing they know for certain is where to find their unread email, compose new email, and perhaps the spam folder.

The rest of the things therein we don’t bother trying to understand what they are, what they do. That is why when someone wants to change their password for any of the myriads of reasons. The quickest way to do so would be to sign out and then try to sign back in.

option, which will then allow you to reset the password. Though we will not get into that; but it involves using your recovery phone number or email.

In this article, we will only focus on how to change Gmail password without having to sign out first. So first thing first; assuming you are already logged in to your Gmail account.
