This article will teach you how to change your JAMB profile password.

Two things you need to log in to your JAMB profile are your email address and password. Please note that the password used here is not compulsorily the same one you use in logging into your email account.

There are three ways to recover your JAMB password, you can either retrieve it from your email, reset it from the JAMB website or chat with your JAMB support.

How to Retrieve your JAMB Password from your Email

When you created your JAMB profile either at a CBT centre or by yourself, a message was sent to your email address containing your profile creation details.

This message contains your name, date of birth and password.

To retrieve your password using this method, log in to your email address and search for “Profile Creation Details”.

If you have different emails and you are not sure of the one you used to register with JAMB, you have to try this process on all your email addresses.

The search result should look like the image below especially if you use Gmail;
