Is there a way in WHM to increase the security on password strengths?
To change the password strength requirements of cPanel, you must have root WHM (which comes with a VPS or Linux Dedicated server).
- Login to WHM and look under "Security Center".
- Click the subcategory called "Password Strength Configuration".
- This page has check boxes for which rules to use and a slider to set the strength requirement.
Note: It is not recommended to lower the strength requirement for created passwords. Doing so generates a greater chance of account compromise, unauthorized access, and total lockout from your server.
