    • One English uppercase letter (A-Z)
    • One English lowercase letter (a-z)
    • One Number (0-9)
    • One special character (symbols such as !, $, #, %)


  • After five failed login attempts, a User is locked out for a 15 min. period. To increase security, when a user attempts to log in again while being locked out and fails, the lockout time period resets to 15 minutes.
