This demo assumes you've already logged in to cPanel

1) Click the Change Password icon



2) First enter your current (or old) password



3) Then enter and confirm a new password



4) Then click Change your Password Now



That's it! Your cPanel password has been changed. You'll now need to use this new password to login to cPanel, so be sure to keep it in a safe place.



This is the end of the tutorial. You now know how to change your cPanel password

Hi,
You have given detailed steps to change cpanel password in WHM and its awesome.
I don't want to arise any question about this and also don't want to disturb anything, but i want to share some details about changing cpanel password in SSH(putty).

If you are a server admin then you can change cpanel password with SSH access too and you can check the below steps:
1). First login to SSH as root.

2). You have to run the below given command to change cPanel password :
/scripts/chpass [cpanel-username] [password-you-want-to-change]
You might get this error :
warn [realchpass] Insecure passing of password on ARGV.
ERROR: /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/realchpass
interface. You can force a password
change through this script by setting
the environment variable
‘ALLOW_PASSWORD_CHANGE=1’.
if you get this error, then run this command and follow the procedure again.
export ALLOW_PASSWORD_CHANGE=1
