How to change the password for a protected category in WordPress

You can edit or delete the password(s) for a protected category as follows:

  1. Go to edit the category (e.g. via Posts -> Categories, or the category page for your custom post type).
  2. On the ‘Edit category’ page, change the passwords in the ‘Visibility’ section. You can either edit or delete an existing password, or add additional passwords.
  3. Click ‘Update’.

Changing a password will reset it to the new one that you have entered, so you will need to give the new password to your users.
