Password requirements

Passwords in easyemployer must adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Must be at least 8 characters long.
  • Cannot be common dictionary words.
  • Cannot be easily guessed passwords.
  • Cannot be keyboard key sequences or repeated words (e.g. qwerty or 1234).
  • Must be of average strength or better. The system will calculate password strength as it is typed.

To make a stronger password, try using a combination of:

  • Upper and lower case characters.
  • Non dictionary words.
  • Special characters & numbers.
  • Sequences of unrelated words.
  • A longer password.

 Some notes about password strength:

  • Leading capitals don't add any strength.
  • Years (e.g. 1992) are usually equivalent to adding a single character when cracking passwords.
  • ! and @ are incredibly common at the ends of passwords.
