Change Password or Security Question and Answer

In order to change your password or your security question and answer, you need to know your current password or security answer. If you have forgotten either of them, click here for information on resetting them.

It is recommended that you change your password every 90 days and use a strong password that includes uppercase, lowercase, numbers, and symbols. Your security answer should be something memorable for you, but not easy for someone to guess or find online. Do not share your password or security answer with anyone, and never allow others to log into your Upwork account.
