Your Apple ID is your key to using the integrated services of the Apple ecosystem, including the App Store, iCloud, iMessage, FaceTime and Apple Music. You also need one to set up a new Apple device. As with any password, you should change it immediately if you think it has been compromised. It’s also a good idea to change it every few months to keep it extra safe.
When choosing a new password, you must come up with one that is at least eight characters long and contains at least one number, one uppercase letter, and one lowercase letter. You also can’t reuse a password from last year.
Here are the steps you need to follow to change your Apple ID password. Note that these only work if you know your current password. If you completely forgot, you need to go through Apple’s password reset process, which you can initiate from any of your Apple devices.
