[3.0.x] Show Password Strength MODX

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

This MOD will show users how strong (or weak) their password is as they type it into the password field. The password field will display a color code (red for weak to green for strong) as well as a text indicator for 'Very Weak', 'Weak', 'Good', 'Strong' and 'Very Strong' passwords. This feature 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 on finding the following criteria in a password:
1) Contains mixed case letters
2) Contains numbers
3) Contains special characters
4) Password exceeds 12 characters

Support is only available through
