We can use SET PASSWORD statement to change the password. Before using this command, we need to have at least UPDATE privileges. Its syntax would be as follows −
SET PASSWORD FOR ‘user_name@host_name’=new_password;
Here, New_password would be new password we want to set for MySQL user
User_name is the name of the current user.
Host_name is the name of the host of the current user.
Suppose if we want to change the password user@localhost to ‘tutorials’ then it can be done as follows −
SET PASSWORD FOR ‘user@localhost’= tutorials;
