Hey, we've all been there. Passwords are supposed to be difficult! When it’s time to set up a new password, you can check out this article for how to do so.

Note: This is currently part of an experiment to a small group of users.
When making your password for your Discord account, it must be a minimum of 8 characters. We will not accept passwords that are less than 8 characters.
Be sure to use a secure password that you don't use anywhere else. Longer passwords are usually more secure than passwords with more symbols, numbers, or cases of letters. Using a password manager is a great way to generate, secure, and use strong passwords for each site you log in to.

Click the link, and you'll get an email with the rest of the steps to reset your password.
Inside the App
If you've already downloaded the desktop app on Windows or macOS, you'll find the link in the same place if you aren’t logged into the desired account:
Doesn't this window look the same? Well, that's because it is. Crazy.
Forgetting your Password on the go
If you're away from your computer (I know that's weird. But it happens to some of us.) and you want to log onto your mobile app, both the iOS and Android apps have the same link, but in slightly different spots:
