I've been searching for free certificate on cPanel and as far as I understood cPanel does offer a free SSL Certificate which auto renews. I did check this free SSL certificate for a new domain just now and it seems to work.

I just wanted to know is it really free and will continue to work or there is any catch? Is it worth it?

Hey there! Yes, it really is free, and really does issue a valid certificate that will work with all tools and browsers. AutoSSL is included with your cPanel license and will renew the certificates as necessary to keep your sites secure, without you needing to do any additional administration work on the server.

More details about the AutoSSL tools can be found here - Manage AutoSSL | cPanel & WHM Documentation
