In this work, we study the potential of searching for triply charged Higgs boson originating from a complex Higgs quadruplet in the final state with at least three same-sign leptons. A detailed collider analysis of the SM backgrounds and signals is performed at a 100 TeV pp collider for the triply charged Higgs boson mass below 1 TeV and the Higgs quadruplet vacuum expectation value ranging from to and the mass splitting between the nearby states of the Higgs quadruplet satisfying . About of data are required at most for discovery. We also revisit the sensitivity at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and find that discovery of the triply charged Higgs boson below 1 TeV can be reached for a relatively small . For example, if and , the integrated luminosity of is needed. But for a relatively large , i.e., , the triply charged Higgs boson above about 800 GeV cannot be discovered even in the high-luminosity LHC era. For , the cascade decays are open and the sensitivity can be improved depending on the value of .
