Published onDecember 28, 2023

Account safety on any platform is important to manage well. When it comes to Genshin Impact, many players end up spending an excessive amount of money on the Wish system. Others pour countless hours into farming Artifact sets, Primogems, and Mora. If you fear that your account might be compromised, it may be time to change your email or password. Additionally, it’s simply good practice to change your password every year. This is how to change your password in Genshin Impact.

THE SHORT ANSWER 

The easiest way to change your Genshin password is to go to account.hoyoverse.com and log into your account. From there, select Account Security Settings > Switch (next to 'Change Password'). Complete the Security Verification by having them send a code to your account email. Enter the code, and proceed to set up a new password for your account.
