Where to change your League of Legends password

If you know your password

If you remember your password to get onto League of Legends, you can instantly change it by going to your Account Management page for your Riot account. If all you are looking to do is sure up your security after the recent hacking incident, this will likely be the best way to go.

Near the top of the page, below your personal information, will be a section to input your current password and what you are looking to change it to. Remember that your new password must be at least eight characters long, must have at least one letter and non-letter, and has to pass Riot’s “Okay” strength grading.
