How to Retrieve Password in WordPress

You forgot your password and you want to retrieve it. In WordPress, once you forgot your original password you can’t retrieve it. The only quick way to enter your administration panel if you forgot the password is to request WordPress to send you a new link where you can change your password. 1. The typical lost password syndrome. πŸ™‚ 2. To request new password, simply click the β€œLost your password?” link (as shown above). 3. Enter your email address. Fill in Captcha if there are any.

Important: The email address MUST be the same as the one you entered in your β€œPersonal Options” page. 4. Click β€œGet New Password” button. 5. Check your e-mail for the confirmation link. 6. Click the reset link provided in your email. 7. You will be redirected to the reset page. Enter you new password then click β€œReset Password” Button.

You should be able to log in to your WordPress Admin panel now using your new password. NOTE: The shown on the screenshot watermarks is an old domain we own where this tutorial was first published.
