Set Password Rules

 

Provide a more secure environment for your data by setting the strength of user passwords. For example, the password must be different from the username and contain at least 6 characters.
1. Go to Administration > Tools > Configuration > Security Configuration to set the password strength for each user type. 
2. Encrypt passwords is another security feature to protect the privacy of users passwords. Tick this option if you want users passwords to be invisible to administrators after the person has initially logged in.
 
Please note that KnowledgeNET will automatically generate passwords and usernames. You can print a list of users and their passwords from Tools > Administration > User Options > Print User List and follow the on-screen instructions.
