    I cannot find a way to change my password in your tabs.
    I cannot find a place to get support to change my password.
    I cannot find a place to write to WP directly, I tried the forum and they told me to contact WP, to delete my registration.

    This is much too hard.

    Please delete me: username- [Deleted for privacy protection]

    Thanks.

      Wow! How you ended up on my website is very strange. I don’t work for WordPress.

      I do not know if you are using WordPress.com or the self hosted version of WordPress, but some of the answer will remain the same, just to be helpful. Again. I do not work for WordPress nor Automattic. Just a helpful spirit in the WordPress community.

      1. To change your password, go to Users > Personal Settings and scroll down to the Password section. It’s right below My Profile.

      2. To get support to change your password, there is the WordPress Support Forums, WordPress.com Forums, WordPress.com Feedback and Contact button for WordPress.com users on the bar at the top of the screen when you are logged in, Contact — Support — WordPress.com contact form page, WordPress Codex, the online manual for WordPress Users, and the Help button in the upper right on every WordPress Administration Panel.

      3. Support for WordPress.com is at the above WordPress.com Support Forum, as is it for the WordPress Support Forum for the full version of WordPress. If you are using the full version of WordPress, there is no one to talk to to delete your registration, just delete and uninstall your blog. To delete your registration on WordPress.com, simply delete yourself as a User in the Users panel or delete the blog from the Settings. Both are permanent, so if you could get to the Administration Panels of your website, you could easily change your password and go on from there.

      4. If you could not get access to the WordPress Administration Panels, at the login screen is a link to request a new password. If you are using the full version of WordPress, see The Agony of the Lost WordPress Password and check the WordPress Codex for updated details on recovering your password.

      6. As I do not work for WordPress or Automattic, you will have to contact them to request further help. I’ve provided that information above.

      Because you had problems with a simple but frustrating issue as a password, please do not blame WordPress nor quit working with it. It’s unfair to judge it accordingly. It is used by millions of people of all ages, languages, and levels of education and experience. It is used by the NY Times, CNN, and the top publishing and media companies in the world as well as with just average folks. Like anything, one little obstacle doesn’t merit avoidance or condemnation. It is very easy to use. Just slow down, breath, and be patient with yourself. :D
