Use the Password & Security interface to change your cPanel account's password, and to manage your External Authentication accounts.
(Home >> Preferences >> Password & Security)
This interface allows you to update your account's password. A strong password is an important part of the security of your cPanel account.
To change your password, enter the desired information and click Change, or use the Password Generator feature.
To ensure your account's security, make certain to create a strong password:
The Password Generator feature generates secure passwords, which are difficult for malicious users to guess. You can use the Password Generator feature in any interface that displays it.
When you click Password Generator, a new window appears that contains a generated password in a text box. Click Generate Password as many times as you wish until you are satisfied with the password.
To set the security requirements of the new password, perform the following steps:
Your system administrator may allow users to access cPanel with external authentication credentials (for example, cPanelID, WHMCS, Google Accounts, Facebook, or your hosting provider's portal). This functionality allows you to reduce the number of passwords that you need to remember.
The External Authentication tab lists the credentials for OpenID Connect-compliant identity providers that you can use to log in to cPanel and Webmail.
You can also use this section of the interface to link new credentials or unlink existing credentials.
To link your cPanel or Webmail account to credentials at an external authentication identity provider, perform the following steps:
To unlink external authentication identity provider credentials from your account, click Unlink Account next to the appropriate account.
A new interface will appear that asks you to confirm that you wish to unlink your account.
