Staff Password Requirements

Password expires after: Create password expiration rule.

As an example, if you set your password expiration to 90 days, this means staff will be prompted to update their password every 90 days. If left at "0," user passwords will not expire.

Passwords can be reused after: Select the frequency in which the same password can be used over again

As an example, you can set passwords to be reused after 365 days, this means staff will not be allowed to reuse passwords used in the last 365 days. If left empty or set to 0, staff will be allowed to use passwords created in the past at any time.

Idle Timeout: Select the number of minutes an idle, logged in staff member will remain logged in before they'll be automatically logged out.

Staff Password Complexity Requirements:

  • Minimum password character length

  • Minimum number of lowercase characters

  • Minimum number of uppercase characters

  • Minimum number of special characters

  • Minimum number of numeric characters

If your organization does not have a policy for password requirements, we recommend (at minimum) our default setting of:

  • Minimum of six characters

  • Minimum of one upper or lowercase character

  • Minimum of one numeric character
