Password is not allowing '&' symbol for salesforce site

Hi Friends,

We have a salesforce site, If password contains '&' symbol it's not allowing user to login even though user enters correct password.

Can any one help me on this ...

  1.  !
  2. #
  3. $
  4. %
  5. -
  6. _
  7. =
  8. +
  9. <
  10. >
For more information on password policies please refer to the below link. Hope this helps.

Mark this as solved if it's resolved.

Hi Nagendra,

Thanks for detailed explaination. I have gone through provided URL and it's very usful.

I verified my org password Policies --> Password complexity requirement is "Must Mix with Alpha Numeric Characters". So I think there is no question about list of acceptable special charecters.
