STEP 3: In the box to the right of Old Password, enter your old password.
  
STEP 4: In the box to right of New Password, enter the new password.
The new password should contain combination of uppercase and lowercase letters, as well as numbers and non-numeric symbols for higher security. eg.: aC8#j^&P*6
  
STEP 5: In the box to the right of New Password (again), re-enter the new password once again for verification.
