joomla support cheshire manchester merseyside north west ukManage all your website USERS' credentials, status and permissions via the USERS screen of the website dashboard.

Individual USERS without special permissions (no access to the dashboard) can change their credentials (username + password) after signing into the website's Front End.

This can be either via a Login Module or a Menu Link.

If you are the only USER then we recommend that you unpublish the Login Module and Menu Link.

And instead administer your website via the dashboard.
