Forbidden Passwords
 
We've finally gotten buyin that passwords on the BBs are a good thing. Now we have to come up with a list of forbidden ones. Has anyone compiled a list they're willing to share? I just hate the thought of typing 1234, 2345, 3456, and abcd, bcde, etc.

Thanks in advance. It won't save my thumbs, but it will save my sanity!

Try entering 1234 or abcd on your BlackBerry as the password. It won't let you do it. I think there is a built in list of forbidden passwords. I don't know what the list is, but its there.

The issue with 1234 or abcd (or asdf, if memory serves) is that they are sequences of numbers/letters (in a row), and as such not allowed.

BBQueen - why would you need a list - the users will get a message if they try to use an 'illegal' password...

He wants a list because he doesn't want to type them out in the policy himself.
