Enter the new password for your account. We recommend something that someone isn't likely to guess, preferably a random mix of numbers, characters (like "#" or "@"), and uppercase and lowercase letters.  You can use a tool like "Password Safe" (Windows) or Keychain (Mac) to keep track of these random passwords, so that you don't need to write them down or remember them at all.

Now that you've set your new password, go ahead and log in to the admin area.  You're all set to go!
