Why am I being forced to change my password?

If you are attempting to log into your cPanel account and are seeing a password change prompt, please complete the password change requested. Information Technology experts recommend that people should update their passwords approximately every three months. On our cPanel servers, we are requesting that passwords be changed frequently as an added measure of security for the server. Regularly updating your passwords means that even if someone finds an old or saved password, it will no longer be useful, and your data will be secure.

How to Create A Strong Password

Here are tips for creating strong passwords.

  • Creating a good combination of 12 or 16 character passwords can be a challenge.

~ Using a password generator will come in handy in this case, which will go a long way towards protecting your online accounts and devices.

  • Avoid reusing passwords since hackers will try to exploit your old password as well as variations of it as soon as they land their hands on it.

  • Consider using a passphrase. That refers to a string of words that make sense of some sort when put together. An example is “Twenty Tots Sit On The Train,” which is 23-characters long, and memorizing it should not be a problem.

  • Invest in a password manager because it adds an extra layer of security and allows you to store several complex passwords.
