    Is it possible for the main Cpanel account login details to enable/disable FTP access? I currently don't see any option inside Cpanel for this. I think if the FTP login details is the same as Cpanel then it renders two-factor authentication useless if an attacker decides to use FTP to gain access to website files.

    Hello,

    There is no any such option available in WHM-Cpanel, but by doing some modification in /usr/local/cpanel/bin/ftpupdate for all users not for single cpanel user.

    Thanks. I guess this could be a feature request so each individual Cpanel account holder can have this ability.

    I submitted a feature request for this last week but it's not approved?

    Hello,

    I do see we have a few requests in-moderation. Give it a few more days and let us know if it's still not approved.

    Thank you.
