3. After clicking settings, you will see an option appear that says password, click “edit” in order to change your password.

4. You will then be instructed to type in your current password and your new password twice. Do this in the appropriate boxes before selecting “save changes”.

Perhaps you, yourself have logged in from a friends home and accidentally clicked “remember password”.

Whatever the reason you want to change your password is, doing it regularly will mean that you have peace of mind and do not have to worry about anybody spying on you.
