Who remembers everything? If you have forgotten the password of your WordPress dashboard don’t worry. You can recover it, it’s a small process. Afterward, you will be able to reset to any password you want. 

In this post, I am going to show you how to recover lost password in WordPress. 

Let’s check now. 

How To Recover Lost Password In WordPress

At first, go to your dashboard’s login page and try to login with your password. If you have failed to login to your dashboard, click on the ‘Lost your password?’ 

Now you will be asked to tell your username or email address that you used to register your id on your dashboard. Provide your name and hit “Get New Password”.

Once you entered a valid email address or username, WordPress will send you an email address associated with the email address. Now check your email and check for the password reset email. If you don’t find it, check your Spam folder. 

When you get the mail, click on the reset password link. This will take you back to your website and allow you to enter a new password. 

WordPress will generate a strong password for you. But you can give your preferred password (though it is recommended to choose a strong password).

A strong password contains more than 8 characters long and contains both upper, lower case letters, numbers, and special characters. Once you have entered a password, press Reset password button then you will see a notification. 

Congratulations your password has been reset successfully. 


I hope you got the whole process right to recover lost password. Always use a recovery mail and try to remember your password. If you have any questions feel free to ask me, I will be happy to answer those. If you liked the post please share it.
