What is the maximum length of an Okta Password?
Published: Nov 3, 2017   -   Updated: Jun 22, 2018
Issue: We use very long passwords in some configuration. What is the max length of an Okta Password?

Applies To: 
  • All Okta Environments

Resolution: 
  • Okta will not permit passwords longer than 72 characters
  • This does NOT apply to accounts that authenticate to Okta using credentials validated against a 3rd party service (Delegated Authentication to AD/LDAP, Social Authentication, etc.)
