Password policy

Password policies apply to a specific organization. In instances where a user belongs to more than one organization, Localytics will enforce a composite set of password requirements to ensure that the most secure settings are respected. To ensure the strictest security, we'll choose the most aggressive requirements from each organization the user belongs to.

Note: Localytics automatically prevents the use of common or easily guessable passwords.
