The length rule ensures that passwords contain the required number of characters.
Define a minimum length so that passwords must consist of at least a specified number of characters. Long passwords - seven or more characters - are usually stronger than short ones. With this setting, users cannot use blank passwords, and they have to create passwords that are a certain number of characters long.

- Follow the steps outlined in Configuring Password Policy Rules.
- On the Policy Rules tab, click Length Rule to expand the rule settings.
- Under Length Rule, select the Password must contain check box, and then specify the following options as required:
