Here’s a complete guide on how to change your Valorant password as well as how to keep your account safe.
A strong password helps keep your accounts secure and Riot Games and Valorant are no exceptions. Part of the process of having a strong password is also to regularly change it to prevent unauthorized access or hackers. There are also times when you simply forget your password and want to reset it. Here are the best ways to change your Valorant password or reset it if you’ve forgotten it.
- If you know your password
- If you don’t remember your password (reset the password)
If you know your existing password
Open the Riot Games client and click on account security settings in the top right corner
Login to your account when prompted
Enter your username and password onscreen.
Go to Riot Account Sign-in Section
In the Riot Account sign-in section, you will see options to change your password. In order to change your password you need to enter your existing password first. Once you enter your existing password, enter the new password you want to change to.
This new password has some limitations in order to ensure its strength and prevent any unauthorized access.
- It must be Okay strength or better
- Must be at least 8 characters long
- Requires at least one letter and one non-letter character
These conditions ensure that the password is not easy to guess and acts as a barrier against unauthorized access.
