Administrators can set password length requirements, and view password strength indicators (which identify passwords that meet the length requirement but may still not be strong enough).
The password strength indicators can assess password strength in real-time and help administrators spot passwords that were relatively secure when chosen, but have become more vulnerable to the latest patterns of attacks.
Here's how to access these features from your administrative control panel:
- Click Domain settings > User settings.
- Click Adjust password settings.
- Select a minimum and maximum length for your users' passwords. Google requires a password to be at least eight characters.
- Click Save changes.
Under the Monitoring tab, you can also keep an eye on how strong the passwords are for each of the users on your domain.
