Fix Recommendation

Configure Samsung Android to prevent passwords from containing more than two repeating or sequential characters.

On the MDM console, for the device, in the "Knox password constraints" group:
1. Set "maximum sequential characters" to "2".
2. Set "maximum sequential numbers" to "2".

Check Contents

Review device configuration settings to confirm that passwords with two repeating or sequential characters are prevented.

This procedure is performed on both the MDM Administration console and the Samsung Android device.

On the MDM console, do the following:
1. For the device, in the "Knox password constraint" group, verify that "maximum sequential characters" is "2" or less.
2. For the device, in the "Knox password constraint" group, verify that "maximum sequential numbers" is "2" or less.

On the Samsung Android device, do the following:
1. Open Settings.
2. Tap "Lock screen".
3. Tap "Screen lock type".
4. Enter current password.
5. Tap "Password".
6. Verify that passwords with two or more sequential characters or numbers are not accepted.

If on the MDM console "maximum sequential characters" or "maximum sequential numbers" is more than "2", or on the Samsung Android device a password with two or more sequential characters or numbers is accepted, this is a finding.
