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.
