Memberstack requires passwords to be at least 8 characters long. The following article explains how to increase this limit.


Want to know how to make a password field require a certain amount of characters? Here is how to do that! 😃


Official documentation on the "minlength" attribute.

Scenario: You need to require at least 9 characters in a password field. Your password field looks like:


<input type="password" id="pass" name="password" required>

In this scenario, you would add a "minlength" attribute like:


<input type="password" id="pass" name="password" minlength="9" required>


Now a user will not be able to submit the form without a password of at least 9 characters! 🎉
