Strong Password Policy
Modifying system configuration to increase password strength.
How it works
Password strength guidelines include increasing password length, permitting passwords that contain ASCII or Unicode characters, and requiring systems to screen new passwords against lists of commonly used or compromised passwords.
Extremely complex password requirements may lead users to saving passwords in text files or picking obvious passwords that meet the policy.
