how to change password in cPanel

It is recommended to change your password at least once a month to ensure maximum security and prevent hacking. Besides, your password strength plays a big role too. A strong password which is alphanumeric (contains both letters and numbers) also reduces the risk of hacking. On the contrary, a weak password is prone to hacking, leading to loss of important information.

To change your password and replace with a strong one, simply follow the below steps:
