You can set rules that users using must follow when they create passwords in your system. Requiring longer, more complex passwords improves system security.
To set password rules:
|Must Contain a Mix of Letters and Numbers|
Requires users to include at least one letter and at least one number in each password
|Must Contain Special Characters (punctuation, etc)|
Requires users to include at least one special character in each password. Special characters include punctuation and characters such as #, $, and ~.
|Must Contain Upper and Lower Case Characters|
Requires users to include at least one upper case letter and at least one lower case letter in each password
