(Home >> Change Password >> The Password Generator)

Overview

cPanel provides a helpful tool for generating secure passwords that are difficult for malicious users to guess. You can use the Password Generator anywhere the button is available.

The Password Generator

 

When the Password Generator button is clicked, the new password will appear in the text box within the pop-up window. If the password in the text box is not suitable, you can click Generate Password as many times as you like, until you are satisfied with the password.

Change password

To dictate the contents of the new password, perform the following steps:

  1. Click Advanced Options.
  2. Select the boxes to include or leave out uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers, or symbols. You can specify the length of the password in the Length text box.
  3. Select the box at the bottom of the window if you have copied the password in a safe place.
  4. Click Use Password to use the password you have just generated.
    • To close the Password Generator but not display the password, click Cancel or the X in the upper left corner of the window.
