Weak or Expired Password Warning

Post by seng » Wed Dec 19, 2012 3:17 pm

Hello,

Is it possible to identify other status of passwords, say "Normal", in the "Quick Access" "Warnings" tab? Currently, only "weak or expired" passwords are identified. Is there a setting I can change to include anything that is less than "Strong" for example?

Many thanks

Hi,

no, these warnings reminds you only of possible security problems.

Red lock symbol – possible security danger. The password of the account (or one of the logins in that account) is weak or expired (if an expiration date is set).

Green lock symbol – the password of the account (or one of the logins in that account) is strong and it is not expired (if an expiration date is set).

To check the strength of your passwords, you have to navigate to the Edit account dialog.

Hi Ondrej,

I know this is an old thread, but I'm getting a red padlock before my login user name on an account, the password of which SP rates as 100% Strong and the password is set not to expire. What does that the red padlock mean in that context? Thanks

Hi BTDT,

could you please post here a screenshot? Which version of Sticky Password do you use?

Hi all,

it could mean that the password for this account is old - therefore Sticky Password suggests to change it.

But as Ondrej mentioned, a screenshot might tell us more, this is just me guessing :).
