How to Change a Password on Pandora

By Aaron Parson

Change your Pandora password from your computer or directly in the Pandora app. See where to make the change and what characters to use.

Pandora's account settings screen looks a little different than those in most apps and websites. Rather than featuring a clearly labeled "Change Password" button, it simply has a field to enter a password. At first glance, you might think this field serves to log in to your account, but in fact it's used to choose a new password. After saving your new password, Pandora asks for your old one as verification.

Tip

  • Pandora passwords must have at least five characters consisting of letters, numbers and punctuation -- no spaces.
  • No matter where you change your password, you'll need to use the new password everywhere you sign in to Pandora.

Change Your Password in the Pandora App

Step 1

Open the Pandora Radio app for iOS or Android and back out of the currently playing station, if you have one open. Tap Settings and then Account to open your account settings.
