Hi,

What is the requirements for password strength at level 50.

Is there documentation that outline the requirements per level, ie is level 50 Uppercase and alphanumeric characters?

Then a second question is it possible to reflect this on the popup when users are typing a password in cPanel.
Where will I have to change this?

Hello :)

There is currently no chart or guide available from cPanel that explains the exact scoring system used. However, the scoring method we use is similar to the one found at:

Password Strength Checker

The above URL should help you to determine what factors into increasing the score.

Thank you.

is there any special characters not permitted as part of a password?
Most symbols are allowed, however this is controlled by the operating system. You will receive an error message if you attempt to use an invalid character when setting or changing a password for an account in Web Host Manager.

Thank you.
