Why Am I Being Asked to Update My Password?

Providing our customers with a safe and secure shopping experience is very important to us. We know that many customers re-use their passwords across multiple websites, and if any of those sites are compromised, it can put your online security at risk. That's why it's a good idea to select strong, unique passwords and change them regularly.

How to Update Your Password

  1. Sign into your account at gap.com, bananarepublic.com, oldnavy.com, or athleta.com.

  3. Complete all necessary fields and you'll receive a confirmation email.

How Do I Sign In and Sign Out?

  4. Once complete, you will receive an email letting you know that your password has been changed.

What happens next?

We show you your password hint.

If you still can't remember your password or you don't have a password hint, click "Email It to Me" to have your password sent to the email address on your account.

Note: For your security, we delete your saved credit card information when we email your password.

How Can I Keep My Account Secure?

As a company, we take our obligation to protect our customers' information very seriously and have safeguards in place to detect potential threats to our online shopping environment. As a customer, there are some best practices you can employ to help keep your account safe:

  • Avoid using the same password on multiple websites and do not repeat a past Gap Inc. password.
  • Create strong and unique passwords that are difficult to guess and be sure to change them regularly. Also, be sure your passwords are a minimum of 8 characters long and include a mix of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers and symbols.
  • Review your account information regularly and report any suspicious activity immediately.
