FAQ

What happens if the password policy level got increased?

Increasing your password security level or increasing the complexity of your password characteristics will result in all your users’ current passwords becoming invalid. Upon saving, an email will be automatically sent to all your users asking them to set a new password in accordance with your new policy.
