Hi, I am wondering how people will validate the size of a password field..
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?
atleast 8 charachters..
Hi, you’re actually validating the input to your application instead of the representation in your database. You’re correct in saying the encrypted password is longer than the input entered by the user. Next, I would only 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.
