This is a simple extension for Restrict Content Pro to enforce strong passwords during registration. Once activated, users will be required to use a strong password during registration. If a user’s password is too weak, they will be presented with an error.
This extension has no options and will automatically require users to use a strong password during registration.

Bit odd – when I searched for and installed it, a WP message came up saying ‘this plugin does not have a valid header’. Then I went to installed plugins, and activated it manually, and it worked fine… strange stuff. Apart from that little hicup – as expected it works wonderfully – thanks Pippin!
Interesting, great to hear you got it installed though!
How strong does “strong” mean? I wouldn’t want it to be annoying for potential new customers.
It checks the number of integers, special characters, etc, in the password and then returns a 1-4 rating on the password. This enforces users to always have a 4-level password.
Could I get a list of the exact parameters (requirements) for a strong (4-level) password? I’d like to display them to the user next to the password fields. Might be a nice addition to this plugin. Our users are getting frustrated because they’re not sure what constitutes a strong password.
Also, any reason we’re not using the builtin password strength meter?
Thanks as always!
A password containing numbers, letters, and other alphanumeric characters that is 20 characters long or greater.
There is a bug in this plugin when a user is trying to renew a subscription,because the plugin is still trying to validate the password strength even while the user is already logged in.
I’ve just pushed out an update that should fix it.
Is there a way to require a 3 rating instead of a four? 20 characters seems like a bit much for our purposes.
Thanks so much
Not without modifying the plugin code, sorry.
Thanks very much for the quick reply. Is it a simple code change that you could post here or is it more involved?
