How to change the form label from Password to New Password and Confirm password to New Confirm password on THEME_form_user_form_alter(without changing any twig files)? I had tried kint($form['account']['pass']) to see any possible way, no clue...

Current Change Password Form

Current password


Password (to New Password)


Confirm password (to New Confirm password)


function THEME_form_user_form_alter(&$form, $form_state) {

There are no #title element on pass field.

  • looks to me that current_pass must be coming from a custom or contrib module, as mine doesn't have that.

    These #titles are defined in /core/lib/Drupal/Core/Render/Element/PasswordConfirm.php. It looks complicated to change, you might have to just do it via javascript/jQuery.

You have to create a new module and use hook_element_info_alter to alter title input like this:

function my_module_element_info_alter(array &$types) {
  if (isset($types['password_confirm'])) {
    $types['password_confirm']['#process'][] = '_mymodule_change_title';

and process function

function _mymodule_change_title(&$element) {
  $element['pass1']['#title'] = t('New title 1');
  $element['pass2']['#title'] = t('New title 2');
  return $element;

and as a result
