Resetting your Password

If you have forgotten the password for your NickServ account and are unable to log in to it; you can send a password reset mail to the email address on your account with:

/msg NickServ RESETPASS nicknamehere [email protected]

You should receive an email containing a command with a password reset key, which you can use on IRC to reset your password.

If you do not receive the email, please check your spam folders, etc.

If you already have an outstanding password reset mail, you cannot send another, but you can contact freenode staff in #freenode for assistance.

If you are logged in to your account already and need to change its password, you should instead use the following command:

/msg NickServ SET PASSWORD newpasswordhere

If your account is compromised and you are unable to change or reset the password, please get in touch with freenode staff in #help as soon as possible for assistance.
