Validate size of but for encrypted password

Hi, I am wondering how people will validate the size of a password
when I use validate_size_of it always pass because the encrypted
password is almost longer than 8 characters…
so how does people force users to enter a 8 char password?


Wite an javascript function which would force the user to enter
atleast 8 charachters…

Hi, you’re actually validating the input to your application instead of
representation in your database. You’re correct in saying the encrypted
password is longer than the input entered by the user. Next, I would
check the length of the password in the following scenarios:
o user registration/creation
o user password change/reset

Otherwise, you shouldn’t be checking the length of the password.

Good luck,
