I want to update my AWS password—how do I do that?

If you’ve forgotten your password, see How do I recover a lost or forgotten AWS password? If you know your current password, follow these instructions to change it:

  1. Sign in to your AWS account.
  2. In the upper-right corner of the console, open the menu with your account name on it and choose Security Credentials.
  3. Under Password, enter your current password and your new password.
  4. Choose Save changes.

You’ll receive email to confirm that your password was reset successfully.

Note: Changing the password for an AWS account also changes the password of its associated Amazon.com retail account.
