If you can't remember your AOL® Password, you can easily create a new one by verifying information about your AOL® membership.
Only authorized users can change passwords. You can use your AOL®
screen name and password on the AIM® service as well. You no longer
need a separate password to sign in to AIM®. You can also change the
password for your AOL screen name when you are on AIM. If you do so,
you'll need to use your new password to sign on to the AOL® service.
How Do I Reset My Password?
If you can't sign on to the AOL® software because you don't remember
your password, you can reset your password from the sign on screen.
This procedure will work only if you are using AOL® Desktop™ for Mac®,
AOL® 8.0 Plus and higher, only for those screen names that show up on
the sign on screen, or if you connect with a dial-up modem.
To create a new password by using your AOL® software:
1. On the sign on screen, select the screen name whose password you wish to reset, and then click the Forgot Password?
link. The software will dial out to connect to the Online Password Reset facility.
