Is it possible to change the passphrase of an account in polkadotjs web-browser plugin?

If the seed words are saved it is possible to import it again with a new password but if I export it to json and try to import it the password remains the same.

Is there any other known way of chaining it?

you can't change the password for your json file. You can set a new password by re-importing the account using the mnemonics. But the password for unlocking the previously downloaded json files won't change.

  • Yes this confirms my observations.
