How can I change my password and what should I do if I forget it?

In the 'Settings' section on your online dashboard there’s an option to change your password or you can use the ‘Change password’ feature in the app. You’ll need to know your old password before your set a new one.

If you’ve forgotten your password, you can reset your password on the Hive website or tap ‘Forgot password’ on the login screen of the Hive app on your smartphone.

If you enter your password incorrectly five times, your account will be locked – you can unlock using the ‘Forgot you password?’ link.
