  • Question

  • Hi all ,

    I have a web site created using sharepoint 2010 running on sharepoint server. This web site asks user name and password to open.

    Whenever i tied to change my password it is giving like this message

    Either the user name or old password is not valid, or the new password does not meet the minimum complexity requirements. Please try again.

    Can anybody help me to fix this please

    Thank you

  • You can't use SharePoint to change your password. You have to change your password first, then login to SharePoint. When changing your password, choose something complex like pass@word123!
