In progress Password Insecure

Post by Pain Thu 28 Mar 2013 - 5:16

I have a member that can't register because he's getting a message that says his password is insecure after using regular type, caps, and numbers. Is there any way I can alter the parameters for the passwords required for my forum?

What exactly did the message say? When you enter a password, there is only three options that will appear: weak, normal, or strong.

Hi,

There is no possible way to alter the requirements of a password.

The password must be a minimal of 6 characters, the system will disallow '123567' but will allow 'Nokia1' for examples.

If your having problems with the password being to weak, you can tell you member to choose a username and password to whatever they want and the admin can go in and override this by creating a new user. I have to do this with some people who were having issues with the password being weak.
