    Hi all. Noob question here, how do I change my password strength requirement? Currently it is set to 100? The only instructions I can find on the web are to navigate to Home --> Security Center --> Password Strength Configuration. But I can't find any "Security Center" in my cpanel home. I am using cpanel accelerated, and have a section named "Security." But in this section are only the following:

    Password Protect Directories
    IP Deny Manager
    SSL/TLS Directories
    SSH/Shell Access
    HotLink Protection
    Leech Protech
    GnuPG Keys

    Some guidance would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    You change the settings for this via WHM, not your cPanel. If you don't have WHM access, you'll need to speak with your Hosting Provider about this.

    Thanks for the reply. I suspected it would be something to do with WHM, as most of the articles I found online had a heading akin to "WHM and cpanel." I'll check with my web host.
