To better protect your account security, we now provide a set of best practices of password policy settings.

As an admin user, you can check the new password policy settings through Admin Center  Company Settings  Password & Login Policy Settings. We recommend that you adopt the following password policy settings.

Pre-requisite: Grant  "Manage System Properties  > Password & Login Policy Settings " permission for the admin user.

  • Enter at least 6 in the Minimum Length and the Maximum Length fields.
  • The password must contain at least two kinds of the following characters: numeric character, special character, upper case characters, or lower case characters.
  • Enter a number larger than 0 in the Maximum Successive Failed Login Attempts field.
  • Enter at least 2 in the Enable password history policy field.
  • Enter a number between 1–365 in the Maximum Password Age (in days) field.
