Passwords may not contain any of the words in the current spell check dictionary.
Numeric prefixes/suffixes on a dictionary word bypass this rule, unless Even with numeric... is checked.

Mixing the case of the characters in the word bypasses this, unless Even mixed-case words is checked.

Enable two-factor authentication via SMS

Default two-factor requirement for users

"Required" or "Not required". For a user whose two-factor authentication setting is "Use system settings", this determines whether the user will be sent an SMS authentication token.

SMS token timeout

Once sent, an SMS login token expires after this many minutes.

SMS profile

This SMS profile will be used to send authentication tokens.


Two-factor authentication is only available if SMS/text messaging is enabled.

Note that these requirements are cumulative, meaning that a password must meet all of the requirements here to be considered acceptable.
