Microsoft 365 / Azure AD | Standard password policy

Password policies that only apply to cloud user accounts

The following table describes the password policy settings that are applied to user accounts that are created and managed in Azure AD:

PropertyRequirements
Characters allowedA – Za – z0 – 9@ # $ % ^ & * – _ ! + = [ ] { } | \ : ‘ , . ? / ` ~ ” ( ) ;blank space
Characters not allowedUnicode characters.
Password restrictionsA minimum of 8 characters and a maximum of 256 characters.Requires three out of four of the following:Lowercase characters.Uppercase characters.Numbers (0-9).Symbols (see the previous password restrictions).
Password expiry duration (Maximum password age)Default value: 90 days.The value is configurable by using the Set-MsolPasswordPolicy cmdlet from the Azure Active Directory Module for Windows PowerShell.
Password expiry notification (When are users notified of password expiration)Default value: 14 days (before password expires) The value is configurable by using the Set-MsolPasswordPolicy cmdlet.
Password expiry (Do passwords ever expire)Default value: false days (indicates that password expiry is enabled).The value can be configured for individual user accounts by using the Set-MsolUser cmdlet.
Password change historyThe last password can’t be used again when the user changes a password.
Password reset historyThe last password can be used again when the user resets a forgotten password.
Account lockoutAfter 10 unsuccessful sign-in attempts with the wrong password, the user is locked out for one minute. Further incorrect sign-in attempts lock out the user for increasing durations of time. Smart lockout tracks the last three bad password hashes to avoid incrementing the lockout counter for the same password. If someone enters the same bad password multiple times, this behavior will not cause the account to lockout.
