Change home directory encryption passphrase

How do I change my home directory encryption passphrase? Thanks.

I found this answer on stack exchange that may help you. If it doesn’t post here and I’ll try to figure it out.

Thanks - this isn’t quite what I need. That post is about changing the passphrase for. A completely encrypted drive. I have only encrypted my home directory.

When you encrypt your home directory it is actually mounted as a separate “drive” in your filesystem. In technical terms, your home directory is in its own “partition”. And so I think those instructions should work. Of course, I have never tried those instructions and I have a different setup (no encryption on this laptop, my encrypted one is broken at the moment).

Is there anyone else who knows this?
