    My WHM was updated to the new version of Cpanel68, but now it forces me to change the password of the account accounts on that server.
    Reviewing in Home »Security Center» Configure Security Policies the Password Age option is disabled.
    What is the reason that obliges the modification of the password of the clients?

    There are two relevant options regarding password strength.

    The first one is "WHM Home » Security Center » Password Strength Configuration". Enabling this option enforces the strength requirement during the creation of new accounts.

    The second one is "WHM Home » Security Center » Configure Security Policies". When "Password Strength" is enabled from within this option, it enforces the password strength requirement for existing accounts upon login.

    Thus, you will need to disable "Password Strength" from within "WHM Home » Security Center » Configure Security Policies" if you only want the requirement to apply to new accounts. Note that it appears this behavior was fixed in cPanel 68 after it wasn't working as intended in previous versions. It is however, what we document at:

    Password Strength Configuration - Version 68 Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Thank you.
