DrChrono adheres strictly to password standards published by NIST (Digital Identity Guidelines).
The following requirements are used for DrChrono passwords:
- A 10-character minimum and 64-character maximum length
- The ability to use all special characters but no special requirement to use them
Three of the following criteria must be met:
at least one capital letter
at least one lowercase letter
at least one number
at least one special character
- Passwords need to be changed at least every 90 days (the software will prompt on to change your password)
- The same password may not be reused for at least five password change periods
Restrict sequential and repetitive characters (e.g. 12345 or aaaaaa)
Restrict context-specific passwords (e.g. the name of the site, etc.)
Restrict commonly used passwords (e.g. p@ssw0rd, etc.)
Your password should be easy to remember, but hard for others to guess. Longer is better. We also recommend using a password manager in order to better secure your passwords.
