Okay, so two years. 

BTW: The max of 63 is too low as well. Given that it's a hash, the size of the 
input should be irrelevant as only the hash is being stored anyway. I believe 
Unimus has tested with 500 character passwords, though it's not necessarily a 
limit.

Hey Guys, 


We increased the max password length in 5.6.1 when the password hashing 
algorithm was changed. Current max length should be 63 characters.

No, hasn't been for maybe a year? That's still at least six years too long.

Though I also would have lifted the eight character max long ago.

They got a huge amount of pushback on that and will be making changes

I recently updated software on one of my units and found the Ubiquiti 
changed the password rules. They now require Upper/lower case letters, 
numbers, and the wonderful special characters. 

The NIST has finally admitted their mistake in recommending those 
password rules
