Changing Your Typepad Password

Your Typepad password is initially set when you signed up but it can be changed at any time. If you registered with an external account, like Facebook or Twitter, you will need to add a password for your account.

It is a good idea to change your password every once in a while and pick a password that nobody will be able to guess. Use a combination of letters and numbers for a better password.

Click the Account link in the top navigation bar to access your account area. On the Summary page, scroll down to the password section. Click the change link. A new password field will open.

Enter a new password: type your new password once in the first box and again in the second box to confirm. The password you enter will be automatically masked by asterisks *** so it cannot be viewed on the screen.

Then press the Save Changes button at the bottom of the page. Your new password takes effect immediately. You will now use your new password when logging into the system.

Add a password

At Account > Summary, click the "Add a password" link. Then you will be prompted to add a password to your account. Once you have added a password, you can use the email address and password for your account to sign in instead of the external account.

Note: If you do not already have an email address added to your account, you will also need to enter an email address at Account > Summary and click Save Changes. A confirmation email will be be sent to the new address with a unique link to confirm the changes.
