Allow better passwords?

New user today, was surprised to see that the app forced me to set a password of 8 characters with 1 number, especially as the IDE uses the same login. I expect to be able to set a much stronger password. Can I strongly suggest this is added to your roadmap if it isn’t already, along with 2 factor authentication?

I’m not sure what you mean, our password requirements are:

Password must be 8 to 64 characters and contain both letters and numbers

I’d love to have 2FA also. You should send your feature request to support@smartthings.com so it can be tracked.

Ha! I just went through this not 10 minutes ago! All my Smartcams lost login after Samsung released a new app for them. The app would just not accept my passwords. The old app worked on my static cameras but my pan/tilts insisted on the new app. I had to go through the initialize setup procedure as if they were new and use shorter passwords. I guess they didn’t get the memo about security on the internet.

This is the sign up page for the Android App. Maybe the message needs to be changed!

Expect this to be corrected soon. Thanks for sharing.
