[Resolved] Want to remove password from login/registration page

Viewing 4 replies - 1 through 4 (of 4 total)
  • That’s a terrible idea. If you did that you’d remove all of the security that’s currently available so anyone that knows a valid username will be able to log into that account. There’s currently 1,000’s of brute-force bots out there that are trying to break systems with usernames and passwords, so take away the password security and your site will get hacked very quickly. The bots do sometimes guess usernames, but it’s actually very trivial to get valid usernames in most WordPress sites, so bots will get in quickly and easily.

    ya i know its not a good idea to remove password , but still i want to explore the register page . is there any way to remove it using hooks ?

    No hooks. The concept is so outlandish that no one even thought to provide a way to do this. You would need to develop you own login form and sign on process. The password requirement is so firmly entrenched in core code that the existing script is virtually useless except as an example of what needs to happen, such as call wp_set_auth_cookie().

    thanks for your reply . as per the reply it seems that it can not be achieved.
