Users can change their account password from multiple locations within the different Google services. For Gmail specifically, the password can be changed by clicking on the gear icon and then navigating to the Gmail settings.

It’s a good idea to change your email password on regular basis. Going more than 6 months with the same email password puts you at risk of being hacked and possibly of being a victim of identity theft.

If you think that your account has already been compromised then you should change your password immediately.
