    Default changing wp password

    I've been trying to change my WP password. I go the the profile page, but it doesn't show the password or the boxes to change it. I am an admin. Anybody have any suggestions?

    BTW, I can sign in because my computer remembers the password.

    Newer versions don't have the 2 fields anymore in your profile. It's under the header Account Management-> New Password->Generate Password. It will generate a new password for you. If you want to use your own and it's seen as insecure, you have to check a box that says you want to use the insecure password.
