When you create a Zoom account, you can sign up using your credentials from Google or Facebook.

However, the most secure way to sign in is to use a unique password that you create specifically for Zoom. To do this, you’ll just need to make a Zoom account.

But if you’ve made an account already and want to change your password, you can do that too.

Here’s how to change your Zoom password in two ways, using either a Mac or PC.

How to change your Zoom password

First of all, note that if you do sign into your Zoom account using Google or Facebook, you can’t change your password through Zoom. You’ll have to change your specific Google or Facebook password, through that specific website.

But if you do have a regular Zoom account:

1. Using any browser on your Mac or PC, open the Zoom web page and sign into your account.

2. Click “My account” at the top right of the web page to go to your account page.

3. In the navigation pane on the left, click “Profile.”
