How to Change a Password on Pandora

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.

Change Your Password in the Pandora App

Step

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.
