    Recommended Security Settings Checklist

    cPanel recommends that "Enable SPF on domains for newly created accounts" in their knowledgeable then why they keep default value "off"? , All security values recommended by cpanel must be set default value to "On" rather than "Off"

    need to think here "Team cPanel"

    Hello :)

    It's disabled by default to allow administrators to make the decision based on their specific requirements. Some administrators may use custom email solutions that utilize custom SPF records.

    Thank you.

    it's not about just SPF record, there are many values which cpanel recommends to be on, but they keep default as "off"

    The decision on usability/compatibility versus security is typically discussed before a new option is added. You are welcome to open a feature request to make specific options enabled or disabled by default:
