Enable Force Password Change for cPanel Accounts

This option is mainly used by the resellers. For security purpose, if the reseller wants to reset the password of the cPanel users you can use these option. Because manually changing and updating the passwords to the user is not an easy way. This future allows forcing to reset the user password by the user itself. When you have enabled these option when a user tries to login to the cPanel the system prompts cPanel users to change their passwords.
