When I login to the my Magento 2.2.4 site it asking me to change the password when I try to do that and press save Account tab nothing happens.

Please let me know what did should I do ?


hi @Ashok Cabral Tera Computer,

for magento 2 there is more security for password. You can try following command

UPDATE admin_user SET `password` = CONCAT(SHA2('xxxxxxxxYOUR_NEW_PASSWORD', 256), ':xxxxxxxx:1') WHERE `username` = 'YOUR_ADMIN_USERNAME';

in above command xxxxxxxx - the secret key generated for your Magento installation.

you can find it from


'crypt' => [
        'key' => 'xxxxxxx'

hope this will help.

Open phpmyadmin select your database and run the below query. your new user name will be admin and password will be test123.

UPDATE `admin_user` SET `password` = CONCAT(SHA2('xxxxxxxxtest123', 256), ':xxxxxxxx:1') WHERE `username`= 'admin'

for more information please refer to the reference
