2422031 - Difference between Symbol and Unique character in Mobile Password

Symptom

What is the difference between symbol and unique character?

Environment

-SuccessFactors LMS

-Learning Management System

Resolution

1. Symbol is nothing but a special character in the password.

2. Here is an example for Unique Chanracter::  The password "aaaaaaaa" only contains one unique character (a), whereas "mypassword" contains nine unique characters (mypasword). Increasing the number of unique characters in a password can increase password strength by avoiding repetitive sequences that are easily guessed. The Unique Characters rule is case sensitive, so "LoOpHole" contains seven unique characters (LoOpHle).
