Config setting to enable generating Ultra strength passwords by default?

Hi there,

Is there a config setting available to generate Ultra strength passwords by default? I can’t see anything in the Administration settings. Perhaps there’s something to add to Nextcloud’s config.php or there’s a undocumented setting in the app?


In the passwords app you can set the default settings for password generation by clicking on “More” and “Settings” in the app. See for details.

Thanks for that. That’s helpful.

But I’m assuming the More -> Settings is an individual user setting rather than a system-wide one?

It’s just that as an admin, I’d like to encourage using really strong passwords whenever people generate ones using this app, so it would be great if I can set Ultra as a default for all users, but no worries if not.

Also, speaking of the settings I can see in More -> Settings, is it also possible to enable End-to-end Encryption system-wide by default for all users too?


Yes, there is currently no systemwide default settings for password generation.

There is a hidden first run wizard which will set up E2e by default (Unless the user finds the skip option). Enabling that requires some effort and is described here: Feature Management · Wiki · nextcloud / passwords · GitLab
