This interface allows you to change the passwords for your reseller and cPanel accounts. Administrators can set a new password without the original password. This becomes useful when users lose, forget, or compromise their password.

  • You cannot retrieve passwords. If a user loses or forgets a password, you must create a new password.

  • cPanel users can reset their account password in cPanel’s Password and Security interface (cPanel » Home » Preferences » Password and Security)

To change an account’s password, perform the following steps:

  4. Click Change Password.
