What is the maximum password length allowed in Office 365?

EXPLANATION


Microsoft instead recommends:
  • An 8-character minimum password length (Azure AD/Office 365 has a maximum password length of 16 characters for cloud identities)
  • Remove character composition requirements (i.e. don't require combinations of uppercase, lowercase, numbers, special characters, etc)
  • No password expiration
  • Ban common passwords
  • Educate users to not re-use corporate passwords for other systems and apps
  • Enforce multi-factor authentication
  • Enable risk-based multi-factor authentication challenges
