Password strength policy

The password strength policy helps you set a strong password for your ProofHub account. 

Password strength policy

By default, users can set their passwords irrespective of whether they are using a strong password or not. However, if required, it can be made mandatory for users to be allowed to set up strong passwords. 

Enable password strength policy

  1. Click on the manage option from the top right corner of the screen.
  2. Select preferences from the drop-down list.
  3. Check the option ‘Allow users to only set strong passwords for their accounts’.
  4. Click on Update to save the change.Enable password strength policy

How it works

  1. Once the option is enabled, any password set needs to have the password strength as either good or strong.
  2. Passwords are considered strong if they have uncommon words, a combination of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and special symbols.
  3. Enter a new password to check if it is a fair, good, strong, or weak password. If the password is weak, it will not allow you to change the Password.
  4. The validation will show up every time a user updates their password or even tries to set a new password first time

Any user with access to 'Manage company, custom domain & preferences' can enable or disable the password strength policy from the Preferences tab under the manage section. The settings are effective for all users in the account.
