VMAX® IP Plus Password Security Policy

Following the VMAX® IP Plus firmware update v1.4.1.1, the VMAX® IP Plus NVR Series introduced an updated password policy to improve system security.

Under the new policy, minimum requirements must be met regarding the login password for system users.

The password requirements are as follows:

  • Must be between 8 – 12 characters long
  • Do not use spaces in the password
  • May use uppercase (A-Z) and lowercase (a-z) letters
  • May use numbers (123…)
  • May use special characters
    • tilde ~
    • caret ^
    • bar/pipe |
    • slash /
    • single quote ‘
    • parentheses ( )
    • curly brackets { }

    • exclamation mark !
    • question mark ?
    • period .

    • dollar sign $
    • underscore _
    • hyphen –

**NOTE:  If you have already created a password prior to updating the VMAX® IP Plus to v1.4.1.1, the system will keep the same password.  If you wish to modify or create a new user, then it must use the above password requirements.

Please complete and submit a request form through the Digital Watchdog Password Policy page. 

Requests are processed in the order that they are received.  Once your request has been processed by the support team, instructions will be sent to the email address that you listed on the form.
