A password is a security mechanism that consists of a passphrase created using Alphabetic, Numeric, Alphanumeric, Symbolic characters or a combination of two or more of the said formats. It is used to restrict access to a System, Application, or Service to those who are authorized to use it. To prevent unauthorized access OrangeHRM is coded to provide system-guided instructions on creating a secure password.
