Safety Passwords


This plugin enforces users to use strong passwords. It means that when a user changes his password, the password must contain at least:

  • one uppercase letter;
  • one lowercase letter;
  • one number;
  • one special character.

The minimum length of the password is defined by the plugin’s settings.

You can also define the period of time after which the user will be forced to change his password.

The important feature of the plugin is settings defining by means of PHP constants.

  • SAFETY_PASSWORDS_MIN_LENGTH – (int/string, number of symbols) the minimum length of the password;
  • SAFETY_PASSWORDS_RESET_INTERVAL – (int/string, days) the period of time after which the user will be forced to change his password;
  • SAFETY_PASSWORDS_RP_ON_REGISTRATION – (bool) whether enforce users to change their password after registration or not.
