If you have a WordPress site where users can register themselves as subscribers, maybe you want them to use more secure way of logging into your site. Default user registration form will allow your users to create short and unsecure passwords and WordPress will only let them know how strong their passwords is. And if you have more than just a few users, this isn’t a good thing at all.
So you definitely want more security options. A good and a simple way to start is by forcing strong passwords on the registration form. So how do you do that? Solution comes with a simple plugin which can be freely installed from WordPress plugin repository.
Force Strong Passwords
- Go to Plugins -> Add New
- Find “Force Strong Passwords” plugin
- Install and activate the plugin
And that’s actually all you have to do. After installing and activating your new plugin, your passwords will have to be strong in order for WordPress to allow them for usage.
