APPLICATION: Involves Stage’s Security feature allows you to increase your system’s security level related to the users’ passwords. By default, the passwords must contain at least 6 characters, when enabling this resource, the system will verify the passwords’ strength allowing or not its submission.
Seeking new solutions to increase the security and encryption of the passwords stored in our system, Involves Stage offers from now on the Password Security resource. Allowing, when it is activated, the creation and edition of more complex passwords for new or existing users.
The system requires by default a password of at least 6 characters, though, when this resource is enabled, the system verifies the password strength allowing or not its submission. This resource increases the odds to create complex passwords, avoiding third parties’ interference.
The only operative access profile for this resource is the System Administrator’s one, and all of your projects on Involves Stage will be affected. The passwords already submitted won’t be changed.
You can access this resource on Menu > Advanced > Security
On this page, you will check your system’s security level status. To change it, please, select the option Increase Security Level.

ENTERING AND EDITING YOUR EMPLOYEES
When this resource is enabled, it will affect directly the entering and edition of new employees. The edition of the password field will require a new password according to the new standards.
The password field of the manual entering, which requires by default a password of at least 6 characters, from now on will verify the password strength allowing or not its submission. Not soon after submitting a new password, the system will notify whether it is safe or not. Keep in mind that our Generate Random Password option is still available, and it’s also a good alternative for the users’ safety and privacy.
Good passwords are the ones impossible to figure out. Use unusual words or inside jokes, UppERCasE or LOwercaSE letters randomly, creative spehlinng as well as numbers and not so obvious symbols.
The import of your employees is also affected. The column password on the import’s template starts accepting any kind and amount of characters possible. Although, if the system identifies the password’s weakness, it will notify it in its Errors Report.
When importing your employees’ list, it’s highly recommended to leave the field password in blank, so the system will be able to generate and send a password directly to your employee’s email. Therefore, assuring the safety for this entire operation.
