It's easy to control your user preferences from your Spreadsheet.com Profile page. In addition to configuring preferences like your profile picture and notification settings, you can use the My profile page to change your password.

How to Change your Spreadsheet.com Password

To change your password, first, open your personal settings by clicking on your user profile image in the top right of any Spreadsheet.com App page (the community and help sections of Spreadsheet.com do not lead to your personal settings), and select Personal settings.

By default, you should land on the My profile menu of your personal settings, from this menu you can change your profile picture, name, email, and password.

Click on Change password and the change password interface will appear:

Password Strength and Matching Passwords

As you type a new password in, Spreadsheet.com will measure your password strength, assessing it as either Weak, Medium, or Strong. For security, Spreadsheet.com will not accept Weak passwords—any password with less than 6 characters.

Strong passwords have at least 10 characters. Ideally, your password would contain:

  • At least 12 characters
  • Some alpha-numeric symbols
  • At least 1 capital letter
  • At least 1 number
  • At least 1 special character (e.g. #, $, %)
  • Intermix characters and numerals rather than ending the password a sequence of numbers

Also, Spreadsheet.com asks you to confirm your new password and checks that they match to ensure a password is not incorrectly entered.

Forgot your password?

If you have forgotten your password, you can request a recent link on the Spreadsheet.com sign-in page. When you go to login, click on the Forgot password? link.

From here you will be instructed to enter your email address and will be sent a password reset link which you can use to create a new password and login.
