You need to reset your password in case you forget it for some sort of gold-fish-brain situation. Or more seriously, you have some troubles with security. Believe it or not, even though resetting password seems to be familiar with most people, due to the fact that it’s quite the same process among different platforms. There is still something to note down with resetting a password on Shopify.

First, there is no difference between resetting the password of the account owner’s account and the staff member’s account.

Second, only account owners can reset a store password. Therefore, as an account owner, you can reset store password yourself. But if you are a staff member, you need to ask the account owner to help you with that.

Third, if you attempt to reset your password too many times or have too many failed login processes, you will be prevented from logging in your own account for 6-12 hours.
