Managing Your Company's Security Settings


As a Certify Administrator, you are able to configure a minimum password strength. Once configured, all users creating or updating their Certify password must meet the minimum requirements for password strength.

This article shows you, a Certify Administrator, how to manage your company’s minimum password strength.

Step 1: On your Certify homepage, click Configurations.


Step 2: Click Security Settings.


Step 3: Choose your company’s Minimum Password Rating. The Minimum Password Rating defines the level of complexity each password must achieve to be a valid password. The 4 levels are:

  • Better: 3 password conditions met.
  • Strong: 4 password conditions met.
  • Stronger: 5 password conditions met.
  • Strongest: 6 password conditions met.

The password strength conditions are:

  • at least 6 characters (required)
  • at least 8 characters
  • one lowercase letter
  • one uppercase letter
  • one numeric character
  • one special character:  !@#$%^&*()_+=,.<>?;:/


For example, the password “Certifyrocks!” would be considered a “Stronger” password because it meets 5 of the 6 strength conditions (at least 6 characters, at least 8 characters, an uppercase and lowercase letter, and a numeric character).

Please Note: The Minimum Password Rating will only apply to passwords created or updated after the rule has been saved.

Step 4: If desired, enter an email address or addresses to be notified when a user records a failed login attempt.


The users listed will be sent a daily notification of failed login attempts. The system will send one notification per day, even if there are no failed login attempts.
