    Hello,

    It's not possible to check any user password, Because all password are storing in encrypted format. You will have to manually updated your WHMCS database with the new password.

    Hello :)

    It's not possible to view cPanel account passwords in plaintext. Do you need to see the passwords for a specific reason?

    Thank you.
