You should use a strong password for every important web service you have. While Twitter may not be up there with Facebook in terms of the personal data connected to your account, you may still use Twitter for important stuff, or have it connected to other accounts.

If you feel your password could be stronger, here’s how to change it.

On the Web

Open Twitter, click the profile icon in the top right and go to Settings and Privacy > Password or just go directly to

Enter your Current Password and your new password twice and then click Save Changes.

On Android

Open Twitter, tap your profile picture in the top right to bring up the menu, and then select Settings and Privacy.

Next go to Account > Password.

Enter your Current Password, and then your New Password twice. Tap Change Password and you’re done.
