Password strength policy settings

Use password strength settings to ensure that passwords meet minimum strength requirements. After password strength settings are turned on, passwords can't contain the user’s first name, last name, or email address. Depending on which password strength you choose (Fair, Good, or Strong) users’ passwords will have to meet additional requirements related to password length and character sets used. The password setting selected affects all regular and external users as well as collaborators.

Click the link How Password Strength is Measured in the Password Policies section of the Security tab to see more details regarding password strength settings.

To change password strength settings:

  1. Click your profile image in the workspace's upper right-hand corner.

  2. Select Settings from the drop-down.

  3. Click Security in the left panel 1.

  4. Scroll to the Password Policies section 2.

  5. Locate the Minimal required password strength section 3.

  6. Select a password strength minimum requirement: Fair, Good, or Strong.

    Note

    Select Not set if you don't want to set minimum password strength requirements.

  7. Click Save changes 4.

How users are affected

Users whose passwords don't meet the new settings will need to change their passwords the next time they attempt to log in or, if they're currently logged in, will be logged out of Wrike and prompted to change their password. When users create a password (or change their existing password), it must meet the specified policy settings.

Password history policy settings

Use password history settings to specify how often users can reuse their passwords. Adjust settings so that new passwords must be different from the previous three, five, or 10 passwords. The password setting selected affects all regular and external users as well as collaborators.

To change password history settings:

  1. Click your profile image in the workspace's upper right-hand corner.

  2. Select Settings from the drop-down.

  3. Click Security in the left panel 1.

  4. Scroll to the Password Policies section 2.

  5. Locate the Previously used passwords section 5.

  6. Select one of the available options: 3, 5, or 10. Select Allow if you want users to be able to reuse their passwords.

  7. Click Save changes 4.

How users are affected

Password history settings are enforced the next time a user changes their existing password and works retroactively. If a user has used their current password more than the accepted number of times, they'll be prompted to change it the next time they log in.

Password expiration policy settings

You can require users to change their passwords every 30, 60, or 90 days. The password setting selected affects all regular and external users as well as collaborators.

To change password expiration settings:

Wrike will require users to change their passwords once the specified number of days has passed.

  1. Click your profile image in the workspace's upper right-hand corner.

  2. Select Settings from the drop-down.

  3. Click Security in the left panel 1.

  4. Scroll down to the Password Policies section 2.

  5. Check the box next to Force reset user passwords 6.

  6. Specify how often passwords should be changed.

  7. Click Save changes. 4

Note

Leave the box next to Force password change unchecked if you don't want to force users to change their passwords.
