This short guide will teach you how to change your password from the Slack desktop app in either MacOS or Windows. Don't worry, this was surprisingly difficult to find.


Open the Slack Desktop app and log in using your current password.


Access Profile & account settings

Click your the Slack organization name dropdown and select Profile & account.


Open Account Settings

In the sidebar pane, click the [•••] triple dots and select Open account settings.


Change your password

You will be redirected to the Account Settings page on the Slack website. From here, simply click Expand under the Password section and use the form to set a new password.

While you're in here, I also recommend setting up Slack Two-Factor authentication.
