Can I change the need to reset user passwords every three months?

It looks likes it was around three months when we all had to change our passwords. Can this time frame be altered so we change passwords less often?
Thank you!

Hi @Jen_Weaver This is one we get quite a bit. There is not an option to change this security feature. This is required of us, to remain compliant, as a software.

Hey @Jen_Weaver, you may want to look into something like LastPass that will generate and save your passwords for you so you don’t have to worry about remembering them or making up new ones every 90 days. Just find the free download button on that page.

Thanks so much for the help!

Out of interest, compliant with what? Current guidance based on the latest research is NOT to change passwords: https://www.ncsc.gov.uk/articles/problems-forcing-regular-password-expiry . It does though back your suggestion of using LastPass or similar to ensure all one’s passwords are different.

Thanks. I’ve raised it with them. Don’t hold your breath! :wink:
