Minimum and Maximum Length Passwords

Hi, I'm trying to figure out my master password before restarting from scratch. Is there a minimum length? Maximum length? Case sensitive? Did I need to have both letters, numbers, and symbols?

Re: Minimum and Maximum Length Passwords

Hi @tarynslp, welcome to the community.


It depends on how long ago you created the Master Password as the requirements changed a couple of years ago. Previously it was 8 or more characters, but then it was increased to 12 or more characters. Also it must include:

  • At least one upper and lower case letter
  • At least one number and symbol

It is also case sensitive so you may want to type it out in a text editor to check exactly how it is being entered.
