Leeching occurs when users publicly post their username and password to a restricted area of your site, allowing other visitors to use the login information. cPanel can be configured to handle leeching, redirecting and potentially suspending the user. The protection function works by setting the maximum number of logins that can occur within a 2-hour time limit. If the login limit is exceeded, the user is presumed to be allowing other visitors to use his or her login information.
To enable leech protection for your website:
Click Manage Users to go to the Password Protect Directories screen, where you can add, edit, and delete users.
To disable leech protection, click Disable under the Disable Protection heading.
