TO CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD (America Online 9.1):

Note: You must sign on to a Master Screen Name account in order to be able to change the password for the Master Screen Name account or any sub-account.

Note 2: If you cannot remember your current password, call America Online at 1-888-265-8004. They will then give you a temporary password. You can change the temporary password to a permanent one using these instructions after you sign on.
