Allow us to change passwords for multiple accounts at once.

I want to change the passwords for hundreds of my own accounts because of the Heartbleed bug. The "Force Password Change" option is useless for me or resellers with tons of our own accounts.

It is unlikely that cPanel & WHM will implement such a feature, as the very nature of encouraging multiple accounts to have the same password is a significant security concern. It is a very poor security practice.


The feature you talk about, "Force Password Change", would indeed be the preferred route to force users to pick a new password versus taking heavy handed approach of mass-randomizing passwords or otherwise setting them all to the same password.


I do not see us implementing the specific feature you're asking for, however, given that it would encourage a harmful security practice of making passwords identical across accounts.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with having an extremely hard password across multiple accounts if they are all my accounts and I can only login from my IP address. It is not harmful at all.
