Once you have entered the new password, click on “Create New Wallet”. Note that there is no option to reset your password like is provided for our other accounts. So make sure to either remember it well or note it down somewhere.

In the next step, you must download your backup file. This is the keystore file which is your recovery file. You should ideally store it someplace safe and make sure to keep a backup.

You will require the keystore file, along with your password, to access your wallet. Under no circumstances should you lose this file.
