    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.

    Thanks, 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.
