How to Set a Password Strength Requirement

    A login policy can be applied to all users in a Central account, including the account holder. This helps administrators better secure their Central account by managing password strength and two-factor authentication policies.

    Before you begin:

    Only Central users with Login policy management permission can edit or enforce a login policy.

    The policy is valid when logging in to, client apps for iOS and Android, and the Client desktop app.

    1. In Central, click Users > Login Policy.

      Result: The Login Policy page is displayed.

    2. Choose a policy for Password strength.
      Option Description
      Standard Use the default password strength setting:
      • At least eight characters
      • Must contain letters and numbers
      • No other requirements
      Enhanced Force users to create a robust password meeting the following requirements:
      • 12 characters or more
      • Made of capital letters, lowercase letters, and numbers
      • Changed every 90 days
      • Does not match the user's LogMeIn ID
      • Does not match any of the user's four most recent passwords
    Results: Upon next login, the policy is applied to all users in the account.
    Tip: As a courtesy to your users, you may want to notify them when you apply policy changes. GoTo does not automatically notify users of policy changes.
