Change your FastMail password

FastMail takes your account security very seriously: they want to make it easy for you to keep your email account safe.

To change your password

  1. Log in to your FastMail account.
  2. From the menu, open the Password & Security screen.
  3. Type your existing password in the text box at the top and click Unlock.
  4. Enter your new password, then re-enter it in the text box next to it. Make sure you don't use the same password anywhere else (see below for why).
  5. Click Change Password.

Note: When you change your password, the old one can't be reused within a year.

Why it's important to not use the same password elsewhere

Your email is the key to your online world; you can reset your password on almost any websites you use if you have access to your email. When you reuse your FastMail password on other sites, you're making it much easier for attackers to potentially break in to your account. If they get hold of your email address and the same password that you use for FastMail, the attacker can then access your email account and get into everything else you use online.

It is recommended that you change your password frequently.
