First, we will go through how to change the password for your account.

Changing Your TeraBox Account Password

The basic strategy for changing your account password is “Where did you register, where you will go”.

  • If you log in using your Google account, Facebook account, or Apple ID, no password is required, so you do not have to change your password.
  • If you used your phone number to register your account, you just type it and log in with a verification code sent to your messages. But now TeraBox no longer supports phone numbers to register new accounts. If you have registered before, you can still log in with your phone number, but it is recommended to bind your email to be more secure.

Phone Number Registration

  • If you registered using your email address and want to change your password, you can click [Forgot your password?] on the login page and enter your email address and click [Reset password]. A verification email will be sent to you. Log in to your email box and open the verification email. Click [Reset password] to reset the password.

Changing the Extraction Code for Share Links

If you don’t want to make the file you share available to everyone, you can put it in a private link. When you share that link with others, TeraBox will generate a special password for it. This kind of password is called an Extract Code, making sure no one can access the file you share without the extraction process. It is a four-digit random one, and you can’t set or change it yourself. If you want to share files with a private link, you can just turn on “set up a private link” and copy the link and password.
