    recommended length for windows password

    hi,

    i change my admin password once every two weeks and sometimes once a week, but i was wondering if anyone could tell me if there is any limit on the length, my passwords are sometimes 21 characters long with a mixture of lowercase, uppercase letters and numbers.

    thanx

    when you do passwords like that try and make 'em ryme is prolly the best advice i can give you and make sure your systems up2date with the windows update if possible however what way you can do it with a windows server and good luck!

    The maximum length for a windows password is 128 characters, so you should be in the clear . Also, don't forget to throw other characters in the mix, like $, @, # %, etc..

    Keep'em guessing.
