The minimum strength of password to allow for user accounts when adding a new user or changing an existing password. Set PasswordStrength to a required password strength from 1 (weakest) to 10 (strongest). A password strength of 1 or 2 is considered weak, 2 to 5 is acceptable and 6 to 10 is considered strong.

Password strength is automatically determined by a combination of methods. To increase password strength, users must create passwords that contain a mixture of upper- and lowercase letters, numbers, and punctuation. For example, susan1 is a weak password, but Su./san23! is a strong one.
