Today is world password day and here are a few tips for Lifesize customers:

 

Icons have 3 passwords and it is recommended that they all be changed during installation.

  1. Web and SSH use admin/admin and support/support
  2. On screen UI uses 1234
  3. All passwords can be changed from the web UI

 

Passwords can be up to 16 characters in length and contain any combination of the numbers 0-9, the letters a-z and A-Z, and the symbols * (star) and # (pound). The passcode must be one to 32 characters in length and contain any combination of the numerals 0-9.

You cannot change the username.

 

For Lifesize cloud users enabling SSO is recommended for several reasons:

  1. users are less apt to forget the password as they use it for other applications
  2. users who leave the organization will not be able to sign on when their AD account is disabled 
  3. Lifesize will not store the users password
  4. an account will automatically be created for a user who successfully authenticates

 

If SSO is not enabled users will need to create their own passwords with the requirement of 8-32 characters with no whitespace. Complex passwords that are not used with any other applications are recommended and definitely don't write it on a yellow sticky and leave it on your monitor
