Change a Password in ASP.NET

Introduction

The registered user needs to login with his/her login credentials (user name and password). After successful login a Change password link will be visible. Here by clicking the link a new page will appear where the user must enter the Current Password, New Password and Confirm Password and then click on the Update button to change his/her password respectively.

Output

Providing credentials (user name and password) for login:

After successful login:

Password changed successfully:
