You can enable or disable strong passwords. Strong passwords make access to the Control Center more secure. When you enable the strong password feature, the current passwords for all administrators expire. However, the password for the admin administrator does not expire. Administrators must set new strong passwords the next time that they access the Control Center.
If you disable the strong password feature, the password history is erased. If you later turn on strong passwords again, administrators may reuse their old passwords that would not have been allowed if strong passwords were enabled.
The ability to use strong passwords with the Remember me feature depends on the order in which the features are enabled, as follows:
Strong passwords are enabled first, then the administrator subsequently enables the Remember me feature.
When the Remember me feature is enabled, if the bypass duration is greater than 90 days (the maximum number of days permitted for strong passwords), then the login bypass duration is set to the same expiration date as the strong password.
This change is not reflected in the Control Center settings.
The Remember me feature is enabled first, then the administrator subsequently enables strong passwords.
The Remember me feature is disabled in the Control Center.
To enforce strong passwords
In the Control Center, click Administration > Users > Administrators.
Do one of the following:
To enable strong passwords, check Require strong passwords.
To disable strong passwords, uncheck Require strong passwords.
The new strong password policy takes effect immediately.
In the Password Expiration box, type the number of days after which users must change their passwords.
You can type a value between 1 and 90. The default value is 60 days.
