"man -k password" will list the name and a short description of all
man pages concerning passwords.  At this point, a knowledge of man
page section numbers would keep you from reading all 30 lines.  (See
"man man".)  Only 3 of the 30 are from section 1, "Executable programs
or shell commands", and the one you want is:
  passwd (1)           - change user password
So read "man passwd" and then run it.
