    Hello :)

    There are no native options in cPanel/WHM that will send a notification after a successful login as the "root" user. However, there are several third-party applications that have these types of features. One such application is CSF/LFD:

    ConfigServer Firewall

    Thank you.

    Yep, you need to edit csf.conf to enable what you want. The configuration file is located at /etc/csf/ directory.
