Let’s see how to change the cPanel password. There are two methods you can use: by logging into your client area or from cPanel itself.

Change the cPanel password from the client area

After logging in to the client area, just click on Services from the top menu and then on My services.

Client Area My Services

Choose the service for which you want to change the password from the list and click on it. In the left panel, you will see the actions you can perform, such as access the associated cPanel, upgrade or downgrade the plan or change the password.

In this case, you have to click on Change Password.

Change Password

Choose your new password and enter it in the New Password field.

Choose New Password

You can also use the generate password button to create a random password of letters, numbers, and symbols based on the length you decide.

Generate Password

Fill in the Confirm New Password field by typing the password you have chosen again and then click on Save Changes.

Make sure you choose a strong password, you can check the indicator below, if it is red the password is too short or easy to find and it is better to make it more complex.

Too Easy Password

Try using upper and lower case or including symbols as indicated in the tip.

Change the cPanel password from the control panel

To change the cPanel password, perform the login to cPanel and then click on your account icon at the top. From the drop-down menu, select Password and security.

Password And Security

To change your password to a new one, you will need to enter your current one and enter it in the Old Password field.

Then type the new password in the New password and New password fields (again) making sure the security level is Strong/ Very strong. The suggestion is to use passwords of at least eight characters.

You can use the cPanel password generator, choosing the length and which characters to use (numbers, symbols, uppercase, and lowercase). Just click on Password Generator and then choose the advanced options as you can see in this screenshot:
