Password Policy

Password policy enforces the security by requiring the users to use strong passwords.

Currently, two methods are supported:


This mode of operation allows administrators to set the rules that user passwords must comply with when changing their password.

The available options are:

  • Minimum password length
  • Require Uppercase
  • Require Lowercase
  • Require Numbers
  • Require Special characters


This mode uses zxcvbn for password strength checking. In this mode of operation, the user is not forced to follow any rules. The user is notified if their passwords is weak or strong.
