You can easily log in to WordPress dashboard from the cPanel without the password. Nowadays we all are installing the applications on cPanel using Softaculous. Softaculous is the installer which has lots of scripts available. It has a list of all the available scripts on its control panel that you can access from the cPanel. Once you are on the Softaculous panel, you can choose the application you wish to install. After the application is installed, you can list the installed application details under the chosen session.
Likewise, you can install WordPress on your domains with a single click. Once it is installed, it will list all the installation details under the WordPress session. In that section, you will see an option to log in to the WordPress dashboard, there is no need to know the password. This is only applicable for WordPress which we have installed directly using the Softaculous. If the sites are migrated from the other host, this option will not work.
