I want to change the VPN on my Samsung Galaxy S but it keeps asking me for my credential storage password. Does anybody know how I get this?

It's been two and a half years. Is there still no answer to this for recent Android versions? – f.ardelian Aug 9 '14 at 23:09

Go to Settings -> Location and security -> Credential storage -> Set password to change it.

Do you know what the correlate for this is on recent Android versions? The menu items are not at all the same anymore. – Calvin Fisher Nov 28 '13 at 5:28

On recent versions of Android (since 4.3, at least) you have to set a password as your device unlock method. If you have a pin or pattern unlock configured, it seems that there is no way to access VPNs. Dumb, but it is what it is.

Just go to settings > security > screen lock, and choose password.
