Whatever your motive, you will miss a "change password" link in AIM Mail and AOL Mail. Fortunately, this does not mean you are stuck with your current password. You just have to take a step back towards what AOL calls your "screen name" (yes, even if you only sign up for AIM Mail you are proud holder of an AOL screen name).
Change Your AIM Mail or AOL Mail Password
To alter the password to your AIM Mail or AOL Mail account:
- Log in to the AOL screen name service.
- Make sure the Manage Your Account category is open.
- Click (Change Password) under Password:.
- Enter your new password under both New Password: and Confirm Password:.
- Click Save.
Note that good passwords changed periodically do not protect against keyloggers on your computer and people peeking at you typing the password.
