Step 2

Click "Account" in the top-right corner of your Facebook homepage and then click "Account Settings."

Step 3

Click "Change" to the right of "Password."

Enter your current password, your new password (your former one) and then type your new password again to confirm it. Click "Change Password" to change your password back to your old one.
