This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Enforce Strong Password

Description

Forces all users to have a strong password when they’re changing it on their profile page. If user enters a weak password an error message is displayed.

It uses the same algorithm to determine password strength as WordPress.

On multisite, network administrator can define required password strength (Network Admin –> Settings –> Enforce Strong Passwords). On single site it’s admin has this capability (Options –> Enforce Strong Passwords).

Developed for private use, but has perspective for more extensive usage. I can’t guarantee any support in the future nor further development, but it is to be expected. Kindly inform me about bugs, if you find any, or propose new features: zaantar@zaantar.eu.
