Below we will navigate you through the process of changing your keys; this is a permanent password change, so please make sure you double backup copies of your keys.
PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU DO THIS, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO REQUEST A NEW EMAIL LINK WITH A NEW PASSWORD from Splinterlands.
Step 1: Get your most recent owner key. If you don't have it, you can request it by following the 10 Steps to Retrieving your Keys.
Step 2: Go to peakd.com (this is the blogging component of peakmonsters.com). We will be using their Wallet functions to change your passwords. Click on the Login button in the upper right-hand corner.
Step 3: If you have HIVE Keychain installed (which we highly recommend), use the blue-circled area to sign in. If you don't have a hive keychain, sign in using hivesigner in the bottom right red circle.
Step 4: Use hivesigner as your sign-in method, and you will see this screen.
You can uncheck the save and encrypt, so you have one less password to remember. Use your owner key here.
Step 5: After you sign into peakmonsters, you will come to this screen. Click on your name in the blue circle, then click the Wallet link circled in red.
Step 6: When you get to the wallet screen, click on the Account Actions button circled in red, then on the Keys & Permissions button circled in Blue.
Step 7: The next screen you come to will look similar to this screen, but you will be on Account Keys (green box). Click on the Change Password circled in blue, and you will see the above screen.
PLEASE READ EVERYTHING IN RED, then click the little box where the red arrow is.
Please put your owner key in where it is circled orange.
If you do not have your owner key but have the master key, you can click on the purple link to use your master key to get the owner key.
Step 8: Next, PeakD will generate a new password for you. Please download a copy of the keys where the red arrow is.
Step 9: Download your keys as a text document and back them up. The download screen will look like the image above.
Step 10: Now that you have used the Download Keys button to save your keys, click the little box. Then click the Update Keys button.
Step 11: After you click the Update Keys button, you will be returned to the screen above. If you do not have HIVE KEYCHAIN installed, we highly recommend that you do, it is circled in blue above.
You will now log in with your new posting key using the red Login button to verify you have the new key stored correctly. Please make sure you are using the new password.
