Manage your password

If you’ve forgotten the password you use to sign in to your Slack workspace, you can reset it easily at any time.

The password you choose must be at least 6 characters long, and can't be things like password, 123456, or abcdef. 🔐 

Tip: Keep in mind, if your workspace has single sign-on enabled, Slack does not store members' passwords.

Troubleshooting

If you see a message telling you we can't find an account registered with your email address, it usually means one of two things:

  • There's a mistake in your email address. It could be a typo, or the wrong email address. Double-check that it's the same email you used to sign up for your Slack workspace.
  • You're trying to sign in to a different Slack workspace. You can find the right Slack URL at slack.com/signin/find.

Tip: For security reasons, you won’t be able to use the same password for more than one workspace. Please try selecting a different one.
