How to Change Password Strength in WHM?

We can manage Password Strength configuration within the WHM. It will make easy to set strict passwords on our server. This feature allows you to define minimum strengths for passwords for all of cPanel & WHM’s features that require password authentication. The system rates password strength on a scale of 0 to 100, where 100 represents a very strong password. We recommend that you set the value of Default Required Password Strength to 40 or greater. Please follow the below steps to configure the Password Strength from WHM.

1) Login to your WHM.

2) Select the “Security Center” option from the page.

Because the “Default Required Password Strength” setting will propagate to any individual options that are set to “Default”.
