Changing the M-Files Password

If you are using M-Files authentication, you can change your password by completing the steps provided below.
Note: If you cannot see this option, it means that your login account is not using M-Files authentication, and thus you have no separate M-Files password for the selected vault.

To change your M-Files password:

  1. Enter a vault via M-Files Desktop.
  2. Either:
    • Click your username in the top-right corner of the user interface to open the user menu and select Change Password... from the context menu.
      or
    • Press the Alt key and select Settings > Change Password... from the menu bar.
    Result:The Change M-Files Password dialog is opened.
  3. Enter your current password in the Old password field.
  4. Enter a new password in the New password field.
  5. Confirm your new password by retyping it in the Confirm new password field.
  6. Click OK to save your changes.
Your M-Files password should now be changed to the one you specified in the New password field.
