Tip of the Week: Password expiry process

TimeSolv’s just rolled out a password expiry feature that enhances your ability to control the amount of security you offer for your clients when using our app. Under the firm settings, Administrators can now choose a password expiry policy from Never, 30, 60, 90, or 120 days.

Existing or new firms will not have a password expiration set by default. The number of days will be counted from whenever the user last changed their password up until the firm’s current setting.

Upon setting a new password expiry policy, the user’s password history will be checked and an expired password will be enforced, should it fall short of the firm’s new policy. If the password is due to expire within the next five days, a warning will be shown after login.

To set the firms password expiry process up, head under Account>Settings

Password expiration policies exist to overcome problems that occur from potential attackers acquiring the passwords of users. By regularly updating your password you help minimize some of the risks associated with these attacks. You would significantly limit the damage that is done in case of passwords being compromised.
