IFTTT is a very useful mobile phone and web app that can be used to automate tasks using simple conditional statements. It can wait for some trigger events and carry out a command or run an app for you when that happens. It works with many different apps and services. It even comes with hundreds of pre-made ready-to-use applets.
There are two ways to create a new IFTTT account – either by using an email address or through popular social media accounts such as Facebook, Twitter, Apple or Google. Even if you use these other accounts to sign-in to IFTTT, it creates an email address and a randomly generated password entry for you in IFTTT account.
If IFTTT has created a randomly generated password for your account or you have forgotten your IFTTT password, then you can change it in the following manner:
- Open your desktop web browser such as Firefox and navigate to https://ifttt.com/passwords/forgot.
- Enter your email address that you used to create the IFTTT account and click on Reset Password. If you have created IFTTT account by signing-in through Facebook, Apple, Google or Twitter then you have to enter the email address associated with those accounts.
- When you receive the email message in your inbox, click on the reset password link. It will open IFTTT reset password page where you can enter and set a new password for your IFTTT account.
Once you have reset and changed the password for your IFTTT account, you can use this email address and password for signing in to your account. This will work in addition to signing in using a supported social media account. This password is also needed if at some point you decide to delete your IFTTT account altogether. Without this password, it is almost impossible to delete an IFTTT account.
