How To Change Your Telegram Password

If you are looking to change the passcode for your Telegram app or you want to change the password required

If you are looking to change the passcode for your Telegram app or you want to change the password required for the two-step verification when you log in to the Telegram app from a new device, this article is going to cover both. 

The passcode must be entered to open the Telegram app either when you have manually locked the app or when you are away from the app for a specific period (defined in the settings > privacy and security > passcode & Face ID) of time. Whatever be the case, you can easily change the passcode or password by following the steps mentioned in this article.

 

Change Passcode (Case 1)

In case you know the passcode but do not want to continue using that passcode, instead, you want to change to some other passcode, then you need to follow the instructions given here.

  • First, open the Telegram app.
  • Now, enter the passcode for the Telegram app.
  • Now, go to the settings by tapping on the ‘settings’ option in the bottom-right corner of the screen.

This is the case where you have forgotten the passcode and would like to change it. If you have forgotten the passcode, there is only one way to reset it. You will have to uninstall the Telegram app, reinstall it, and set up the passcode again.

Also, if you have any secret chats, they will be lost. So, be careful with this process. Do it only if you have no other option and can't remember the passcode.
