ActivePasswords Settings (all optional)

ActivePasswords has no problem with an forbidden-word-dictionary that contains ten-thousands of words. These words may not make up more than a configurable percentage of the password. E.g. myPassword12 will not pass the test if the word password is in the list.

ActivePasswords rule example:

Installation is simple: install ActivePasswords on each of your domain controllers (Windows Server 2008(R2), 2012(R2), 2016, 2019 and 2022 are fully supported), reboot, configure the group policies to your liking and you are done. No need to touch desktops and laptops. You can keep track of password related events through the Windows event viewer and log files.


ActivePasswords pricing is based on the number of enabled and targeted Active Directory users and is subscription based. A subscription gives you usage rights, updates and e-mail support for 1 year. Only $1.50 (€1.40) per user per year! (a minimum amount of 50 licenses applies)
