How to update password for existing VPN connection on Windows 10.

Where I can find current VPN's usernames and how is possible to update it's password ?


For me, VPN password change didn't automatically pops up when connecting through clicking on network icon on taskbar. Maybe it's issue of VPN provider.

I did the reset through Settings > VPN > "CLick on specific VPN" > Advanced > Clear sign-in info and now the popup on next connect is shown.

  • If the password has already been changed, you will be prompted for the new password, when you attempt to connect using the old password – Ramhound May 29 '17 at 13:59

Go to Settings and search for VPN. You should find "Change virtual private networks (VPN)".

There you should see the VPN you are looking for. Click on it and then click on Advanced options.

There you can see the user name. Click on Edit to update the credentials.


Another workaround:

  • go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Network Connections
  • Right click, select properties, options tab, and uncheck Remember my credentials
  • Next time you try to connect you will be asked for new credentials.
  • If you want to remember your credentials again, check Remember my credentials again, and it will be remembered next time when you type in credentials
