Setting Password Requirements

What to Expect

  • An Opt-in feature controlled by the Account Administrator.
  • Easily create password requirements to match district requirements. 
  • Options include password settings for length, required characters, password expiration, and the number of attempts before lock out. 
  • Prevents the use of a common password and password reuse.
  • These rules are designed to increase password security and can be configured below. This policy applies to all educator and admin accounts.
  • Districts integrating with Clever or Classlink will not have this option as their passwords are managed through Third-Party Rostering. 

Enabling Password Requirement Settings

  • Select Administration Center in the black bar at the top
  • Hover over the "Settings" option and select "Application"
  • Under "Password Requirement Settings" select the check box for "Enable Password Requirements"
  • Select Save Changes

*Note: This setting only affects educator roles, not student roles.

Adjusting Educator Password Settings

  • Select Administration Center
  • Hover over "Users" and select "Educator Password Settings"
    *Note: You must enable Password Requirement Settings before you will be able to locate this option.
  • Require a password length
  • Require a specific type of characters
  • Set the password to expire after a certain number of days
  • Set a certain number of password attempts
    *Note: This setting only locks the Educator out for 30 minutes and then they can attempt the same number of attempts you've set this setting to.
  • Prevent reuse of a common password. 
  • Block Common Passwords or phrases.
  • You can also force the reset immediately, which will require educators to meet the requirements you set the next time they log in.
