Prevent users from using a specific "bad" word in their passwords


Recommended Posts

Purpose:

For added security, you may wish to stop users from creating a password which contains certain words.

 

Example:

You want to prevent any given user from having the ability to create a password that contains the phrase "clickstudios", which may look something like Clickstudios01 or clickStudios2015

 

How to I Do This?

 

1. As a Passwordstate Security Administrator, click Administration -> Bad Passwords and enter "clickstudios"

2. Click Administration | System Settings -> Miscellaneous and choose Use regular expressions when matching 'Bad Passwords'

 

*Note* Using the regular expression option can cause a slight performance impact of Passwordstate.  If you wish to avoid this you can add in multiple words into Bad Passwords that match your criteria.

Now when a user goes to enter a password that contains clickstudios, it will warns them and also deny them from saving that password
