By default, there's no password, but you may set it. For example, check this article: How to set the Oracle database listener password?

Just execute the "status" command on the listener and you will get the answer.

Advice: on the current versions do NOT set a password and let the default configuration it is the most secure one.

Just look at the status before and after you set the password!
Hint: it is on line "Security".
