Check of password strength is not sufficient

3 years 1 week ago #7849 by Karl
How / Where to adjust the check of the password strength?

By default it is not sufficient. The jump from "weak" to "strong" is much too early and does not correspond to my specifications in the Joomla registry:
At least 8 characters long.
At least 2 upper and 2 lowercase letters
At least 2 digits and
At least 2 special characters.
These settings are not taken into account by Ajaxregister. In which file is it to override?

Regards, Karl

Hello,

Password strength options is pretty recent Joomla feature so it is not yet reflected in AJAX Register. It will have to be added in a future version so it takes these options in consideration. I will let you know when it's integrated.

Thanks.

New version (3.7.6) is released. The password options from admin settings will now be included in password validation. Also, I improved the password strength method. However, it will not be influenced by admin password settings. Instead, it will always award stronger passwords a better score. I think it's more correct this way. You can go ahead and test.
