Just like the password for your email address or your account, FTP Account passwords should be changed too, for security purposes. This is also best when the user for the intended FTP account no longer works for you, or they’re already done with the project.
To change your FTP password, go through the instructions below:
Step 1. Log in to the cPanel using this link format: http://yourdomain.com/cpanel
Replace yourdomain.com with the Main Domain Name connected to your hosting.
Step 2. Click FTP Accounts under Files panel.
Step 3. Under FTP Accounts, locate the FTP account you’d like to do changes with.
Step 4. Click Change Password under Actions. Type your new password twice.
You may click Password Generator, make sure to copy and paste on a secure notepad.
Step 5. Click Change Password.
Changes done with the password is immediate, you may connect with your FTP account to connect to the server to test.
