Password strength requirements (cPanel)
Posted by SITEWORKS SYS on 02 August 2011 01:43 AM

Minimum levels required (80+)

All of our cPanel servers require minimum password strength of 80 (eighty) for any NEW or RESET password options. For example, if you create a new email account its password must reach the VERY STRONG level on the strength meter before you can proceed to save/create the account.

What is a strong password? The strength of a password depends on the different types of characters that you use, the overall length of the password, and whether the password can be found in a dictionary.
