Start by going to the login screen of your WordPress site. You can add the following to the end of your domain to normally get to the login page of your site:

/login
/wp-admin
/wp-login.php

Most sites should have a link below the login section that states “Lost your password?” that you want to click. It will bring you to a new section requesting your username or Email Address, this will send an email to that user’s email or the specified email if there is a user with that email address.

The page should update with the message “Check your email for the confirmation link. The email itself should have your blog title followed by Password Reset in your inbox after a few minutes. Make sure you check your spam or junk folders as some emails can be caught there.

The second link in your email should be to reset your password, it will take you back to your website and will allow you to enter a new password for your account. It will automatically generate a strong password for you that you can change to your own password of choice. When that is set up you can press the Reset Password button to set your password.

If you are not receiving the email or are having another issue with resetting using this method you would want to take a look at our article:

    When I click the Forgot Password link, it takes me to a Page Doesn't Exist page in my own theme. Yikes.
