Password Security Policies
We released a new set of features that help keep your account safe from potential threats. The new update includes the following password security policies:
- Periodic password expiration: Passwords will now automatically expire every 3 months by default. This will help ensure that passwords are regularly updated and less vulnerable to hacking attempts.
- Account lockout after failed attempts: If there are more than 5 failed login attempts within one hour, the account will be locked out for one hour to prevent unauthorized access. This feature can be enabled from the Compliance Center settings by checking the option "Enable password security policies"
- Password history: Users cannot reuse their last 3 passwords, which helps prevent users from reverting to old and potentially compromised passwords.
- Username reference exclusion: Passwords cannot contain any references to the username, making it more difficult for hackers to guess the password.
All users who have never changed their password since the account setup will be required to update their password in order to comply with these new security policies. If you encounter any issues, please contact our support team for assistance.
We are committed to providing a secure product, and we believe that these password security policies will help us achieve that goal.
Simplified Locations onboarding
We removed the requirement to create a Location Admin while creating a new location from the dashboard. You can still create and assign a Location Admin by checking the option "Create a Location Manager".
We also removed the requirement to add the first Access Point contextually to the setup of a new Location. In this way, you can add your Location inventory in advance.
