Allocadia’s Dictionary Check options lets Administrators prevent users from selecting words found in a dictionary as their password. This allows for increased security by requiring the user to choose a password that cannot be easily guessed, decreasing the probability for others to guess their password and potentially access sensitive data.

Best Practice: You can toggle the Dictionary Check option off, but for security purposes we recommend you enable it to prevent users from selecting common passwords.
  1. Click the Settings button next to your name at the top of the screen
  2. Select Security in the drop-down menu to navigate to the Security page
  3. On the Security page, toggle the Dictionary Check box on
Tip: If your users are struggling to come up with an appropriate password and Dictionary Check is turned on, recommend they use common letter substitutions such as $ for s and 3 for e, or other numbers and symbols.
