This typically occurs when you include a symbol (e.g., “&”) that is not permitted according to the list of supported symbols.
In the example below, the password meets the length requirements and includes all the correct types of characters, but it also includes a symbol that is not permitted.
Password errors may also occur if you use a very weak password, such as a value that is too similar to the word “password” itself.
