How Do I Change My Outlook Password

STEP 4: You need to verify your identity with two-factor authentication. Firstly, enter your current password for security reasons, and after this, you will again need to verify your identity by either of the following means.
You can tap any option you find quickly.
STEP 5: In my case, it asks to download the app for quick changes. Here you need to enter your current password and new password. Confirm a new password again and tap on the Save option. Tap not now and proceed further.

What’s blocking me from modifying my Outlook security settings?
If you have recently updated your password but are still experiencing problems with the Outlook client on your computer, the problem is likely not with the password. To resolve this problem, you must delete the old credentials from the Windows Credential Manager.
