We’ve heard you!
Our password requirements have been tough – that’s because Washington Healthplanfinder keeps some sensitive information. But after many of you noted to us that the password rules were too strict and that your password expires too quickly, we’ve made some changes.
Now, when you create or update your password, you can’t use a previous password and you’ll need to make it at least 8 characters long. That’s it. No more need for at least one uppercase character, lowercase character, special character, or any other special rule. It’s all up to you! And, we’ve provided a handy password strength indicator to help.
The best part? Your password no longer expires. Ever.
Because of this, you won’t be getting an email reminder that your password is expiring anymore, but we’re betting you won’t miss it.
