Wattpad is a website for readers and writers of user-generated stories.. Launched in December 2006, Wattpad now has more than 80 million users.
Wattpad holds several writing contests each year, and the company has ties to publishers, so Wattpad writers can potentially receive compensation for their work. Established publishers have even approached successful Wattpad authors to negotiate publishing deals, making Wattpad a popular website for aspiring writers.
In June 2020, Wattpad suffered a massive data breach that left user recordings exposed. These logs included names, email addresses, IP addresses, and passwords, and the data was quickly posted on a public hacking forum. While this security breach is not the fault of Wattpad users, it has reminded them that they frequently need to change their passwords.
This article will show you step by step how to update your Wattpad password. We'll also show you how to reset your Wattpad password if you've forgotten it.
