There are two scenarios where you may want to change your Confluence password:

  • You're logged in, but you want or need to change your password
  • You've forgotten your password and can't log in, so you need to reset your password

From within Confluence

Change your password when you're logged in:

  1. Choose your profile picture at top right of the screen, then choose Profile
  2. On your Profile tab, click Password in the left-hand column
  3. Enter your current password and your new password in the form displayed
  4. Click Submit


  1. Location of Settings in the profile menu
  2. Location of Password in the side bar

From the login page

If you've forgotten your password and need to reset it, you can do so from the Confluence login page. Choose the 'Forgot your password?' link and Confluence will step you through the process to reset your password.

Don't see the Password option?

You may not be able to change your password directly in Confluence if your login credentials are coming from another user directory, for example if Confluence is integrated with an LDAP directory or Jira for user management. 

Talk to your administrator about where you should change your password.
