[3.1.x] Password Strength Extension

Post by VSE » Thu Jun 02, 2011 5:06 pm

An extension for phpBB 3.1 that will show users how strong (or weak) their password is as they type it into the password field.

This extension is a port of the MOD for phpBB 3.0.x.

  • Password strength is indicated visually. The password field will change colors as the user types in a password, displaying red for weak passwords through green for strong passwords.
  • Below the password field a text indicator will also appear describing the password strength as 'Very Weak', 'Weak', 'Good', 'Strong' and 'Very Strong'.
  • Password Strength is active on new user registration, and in the UCP and ACP areas where you can change existing passwords to new passwords.
  • Password strength is graded by finding the following criteria in a password:
    • Contains a minimum of 6 characters
    • Contains mixed case letters
    • Contains numbers
    • Contains special characters
    • Password exceeds 12 characters
Support is only available through
