Why Resetting Your Shopify Password Is Necessary?

Your Shopify account is the gateway to the online eCommerce world, where you keep all important and confidential information hidden. Cyberpunks are always on the lookout for accounts with weak passwords, so changing it regularly keeps your Shopify account safe and secure.

Here are some reasons you should change your Shopify password often:

  • To protect your account from unauthorized access: Changing your password on a regular basis reduces the chances of unauthorized access from hackers. As per password statistics, 34% of users change their password every month for this cause. 
  • You have forgotten your password: People often forget passwords, and I am one of them too. Shopify allows you to change the password if you accidentally forget them. You can change it using your registered email. 
  • Routine Security Practices: Even if you set a strong password and feel safe with it, consider changing it every 3 to 6 months. This way, it will be harder for unauthorized individuals to compromise your account. 
  • Employee Departures: Revoking your Shopify password is extremely crucial if an employee leaves who has access to your account previously. Changing the password ensures your store’s security.
