    With the recent massive password leak at LinkedIn, I have changed my password. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to update it in my Microsoft settings for the phone.

    I have tried under the LinkedIn account on the phone but it doesn't have a password box.

    I tried logging into my MS passport webpage, and found the section that shows Facebook, LinkedIn, etc, but there doesn't seem to be anywhere there either to update the password.

    Help!

    Thanks

    You'll need to delete your sync and then re-add the account.

    I did that on the MS passport site... but then when I went to re-add, it said something like "you were previously connected to this account" and re-set it up for me. It didn't seem to have options there to specify the password.

    This is very frustrating.

    (Or maybe you mean delete the account on the phone?)

    Thanks for the help!

    When I go to the LinkedIn account on the phone there are no buttons. Just a greyed out user and password. So I don't know how to delete it from there.

    Pressed and hold. This is done on your phone in settings "Email and Account"

    Great! Thank you... I am now back up and running... hopefully MS will make this a little clearer in the future, or provide a way to just change the password.
