Forcing strong passwords to registered users is also important way to protect WordPress sites from being hacked. Yeah that’s true because mostly we use very easy passwords and attackers use the method of brute force to figure out the most common passwords and use them via hacking software to hack into your WordPress sites.

Most of the websites got hacked just because of keeping easy passwords yet weak. FYI: A strong password requires symbols like ! ” ? $ % ^ &. WordPress have made this easier to know if a password is strong or not by adding a JavaScript-powered indicator in user profile for making sure that user has entered a strong password. However, there is no way to stop users entering weak passwords. In this article, we’ll teach you how to force strong passwords to registered users in WordPress?
