Enhanced password functionality
Starting from ver 2.14 or later of learningBOX, new features have been added to enhance security.
This page introduces the newly added and changed password characters and character types.
How to use the password function
Login to the learningBOX.
Click the arrow next to [Settings] on the side menu bar.
Click Security Settings.
The security setting screen is displayed.
You can change or edit your password from this setting page.
Strengthen the number of characters in the password
In Ver2.13 and earlier, the minimum password length was fixed at 8 characters, but from Ver2.14 onwards, the minimum password length can be changed between 8 and 30 characters.
|Ver2.13 ⇒ (8 characters)||Example) sample01|
|Ver2.14 ⇒ (8 to 30 characters)||Example) sample01 ～ sample0123456789|
Password character type
In Ver2.13 and earlier, it was mandatory to use at least one half-width English character and one half-width numeric character for passwords. However, since Ver2.14, you can add a minimum character type for passwords.
You can add English letters (at least one uppercase and one lowercase letter) and special symbols.
Reject passwords that contain the same string of characters as the user ID
Before Ver2.13, you could set a password with the exact same string of characters as your user ID, but from Ver2.14 onwards, you can choose to "Allow/Disallow" the use of the wording used in your login ID.
If you disable the toggle switch for "Allow the use of the wording used in the login ID when setting the password", the character string including the login ID will cause an error when checking the input of a new password.
If you do not allow the use of the wording used in the login ID when setting the password
This time, since it is practice, I will introduce it by using the case where "login ID and password" is [tatsuno9] as an example.
In the case of an exact match
An error message will be displayed if there is an exact match between the login ID and password strings.
If the password is a partial match, you can change it.
Passwords that have been used in the past
Before Ver2.13, it was possible to set a password that was set in the past, but if the previous password is entered as a new password, an error message will be displayed.
The last two passwords (one before the current one and the current one) are in error.
