Validating a password in php updating angry birds itunes store

Since it appears like this is somehow shown to the user I would notifyabout all the errors that happened in choosing the password, so that they can all be corrected in a single try.

Another sidenote: Since your code reminds me of the time where I was just getting started and this seems to be at least somewhat related: Don't save passwords, save their hashes. If you're using PHP First thing first - if your else condition ends with a return, you don't need nest your if statements.

and setup how you want to handle passing error messages, and the above method will do you some justice.

You can "tune" it by altering the allowed Levenschtein distance (currently 6).

This allows the verify function to verify the hash without needing separate storage for the salt or algorithm information. If you get incorrect false responses from password_verify when manually including the hash variable (eg.

for testing) and you know it should be correct, make sure you are enclosing the hash variable in single quotes (') and not double quotes (").

As an aside, don't just do your password validation only on the server side.

Having a client-side Javascript solution as well means your users will get faster feedback that their password is not allowed, improving their user experience.

Anyway, there's still risk to have your session cookie stolen by tools like Fire Sheep if not all of your data transfer is encrypted.

But not transmitting the password in clear text should be the least to do.

If there is more than 1 thing that is being validated, and the user has to pass all of the checks, let them the first time.

It's possible to have no capital, no number, and be too short -- don't make the user attempt a password 3 times to figure that out (and don't assume they'll read the instructions first).

The password fields are not being validated by the code and it sends the data to the database.
