Customizing Login Rules with Responsive's Password Policy

Overview

The Responsive Password Policy is an optional feature that allows you to customize the criteria required when establishing a password for Responsive. If enabled, this feature allows you to set rules for Responsive user passwords, and only passwords that comply with these personalized requirements will be accepted during account activation or password changes.

Your company IT policies require specific password criteria such as character type/limit, reset cycle, and historical password usage restriction.

Permissions

Only Admin users with access to Organization Settings are able to set up the password requirements.

Select the applicable tab for your edition of Responsive.
