SharePoint 2010 does not come with an out-of-the-box password change functionality. If you want to enable your users to change their password on their own, the Change Password add-on is what you need.
The feature is accessible via link in the account popup menu. In order for the change to take place, the user must first enter his old password.
Transfer of sensitive information like passwords over the web must always be done securely. Change password add-on warns the user if he is not using a secure connection and displays information about the SSL certificate if the connection is secured.
- Easy to install as a site collection feature.
- Connection type information.
- Integrated in the user account menu.
