This interface allows you to update and manage your WHM account’s security questions. You can also add verified IP addresses from which you can log in to your WHM account without security questions.
The changes that you make in this interface do not change the security questions for other WHM, cPanel, or Webmail accounts on the server. To require WHM users to answer security questions when they log in, enable the Limit logins to verified IP addresses setting in WHM’s Configure Security Policies interface (WHM » Home » Security Center » Configure Security Policies).
When you attempt to log in from an unverified IP address and successfully answer your security questions, WHM automatically adds that IP address to the list of verified IP addresses.
If you configure your own security questions, and then immediately enable the Limit logins to verified IP addresses setting in WHM’s Configure Security Policies interface (WHM » Home » Security Center » Configure Security Policies), WHM automatically adds your IP address to the list of verified IP addresses.
