Password Settings

Password Settings is used to define the security password for your device.  This password unlocks GO!NotifyLink Security Settings and the Inactivity and Challenge Timeouts.  It is also used to unlock the device after powering on, as a key for Email Encryption at Rest, and, in an altered format, for Duress Notification.  (See Lock Settings for more on these features.)

You must set a password for the device if you wish to enable the following security features:

•      Inactivity Timeout

•      Challenge Timeout

•      Email Encryption at Rest

•      Password Echo

•      Wipe on Failed Unlock

•      Duress Notification

 

Several options can be set for the password as well.

•  You can assign a password strength that will assist you in consistently creating passwords that meet the level of complexity you require. 

•  You can assign an expiration period for the password. This issues a reminder and a prompt to change the password upon expiration. 

•  You can request that a history be stored so that you do not repeat the use of a particular password.

Lock Password

This password will unlock Security Settings and the Inactivity and Challenge Timeouts.  It is also used to unlock the device after powering on, as a key for Email Encryption at Rest, and, in an altered format, for Duress Notification.  The password is case sensitive and must meet the criteria of the Password Strength.

Hint:  Use the pop-up menu option, Show Symbols, to select characters for a special symbols requirement.

Password Strength

This determines the password’s level of complexity and will assist you in consistently creating passwords that meet character pattern requirements.  Choose from the following options:

•      Minimal - Must be at least 4 characters.

•      Weak - Must be 8 to 20 characters. (Default)

•      Moderate - Must be 8 to 20 characters and include 1 letter and 1 number.

•      Strong - Must be 8 to 20 characters and include 1 letter, 1 number and 1 special character (! ? #, etc.).

•      Very Strong - Must be 8 to 20 characters and include 1 uppercase letter, 1 lowercase letter, 1 number, and 1 special character (! ? #, etc.).

Password Expiration

Enable or disable Password Expiration and enter the Number of Days before a password expires in the range of 30 to 365 days.  (Default is 90 days.)  If enabled, fifteen days prior to the expiration, you will be reminded that your password is approaching its expiration.  When the password expires, the device locks.  You must unlock it with the current password and then create a new password at the prompt.

Password History

Enable or disable Password History and enter the Number of Passwords.  (Default is 12 passwords.)  If enabled, this feature prevents you from reusing passwords too soon.  You can choose to store anywhere from 10 to 100 passwords.  EX: If the number of stored passwords is 10, you will not be able to use the past ten passwords.  When you create the eleventh password, the oldest stored password becomes available for use again.
