    Is there any way to set a minimum password length or general password strength rules? As is a user can register with a one character password.

    I have searched the forum and documentation and can’t seem to find anything on it.

  • I was able to set this with the wpmem_pre_register_data hook. Was just wondering if there was anything built in for it. Thanks 🙂

    The plugin itself does not have a password strength component. As you noted, you can certainly use the wpmem_pre_register_data action to write in custom validation such as password rules (but could be any necessary custom validation).

    There is a premium extension that does incorporate the WP password strength meter into registration (if a password is created at registration) and password change, allowing you to require strong passwords. The extension has several additional features, but those specific to passwords are:

    • Require current password when changing password
    • Require random password after a defined time period/li>
    • Require passwords be changed after a defined time period
