  • Plugin works as stated but would be good to be able to have more control over what format you require the password to be.

    Thanks for the feedback! Could you elaborate a bit? I’m unfortunately not able to change what WooCommerce determines is a strong/weak/etc. password, but one thing I’ve been looking at is being able to change the message that appears at each level so you get a green light earlier if you have weaker restrictions.

    The WooCommerce password strength is calculated using zxcvbn created by dropbox

    Test here:

    It looks for common words and also substitutions to work out strength. So its better than just checking for >7 characters…

    Danny,

    Have you been successful in changing the feedback message based on the relaxed requirements allowed by your plugin yet (i.e. getting the green light for sooner)? If not, I’m going to have to pay someone else to accomplish this. All my site users are complaining about it and we really don’t have what would be considered extremely sensitive information anyway.

    Hey rtbower,

    This feature should be added sometime this week – there is an update coming that allows you to change the strings of text that displays at each stage.

    Keep an eye out for an update soon!
