Additional libraries for validating passwords in Django 1.9 or later.

Project description

Additional libraries for validating passwords in Django 1.11 or later.

django-password-validators requires Django 1.11 or greater.

The application works well under python 3.x and 2.x versions.

Django version after the number 1.9, allows you to configure password validation. Configuration validation is placed under the variable AUTH_PASSWORD_VALIDATORS.


Just install django-password-validators via pip:

$ pip install django-password-validators



Validator checks if the password was once used by a particular user. If the password is used, then an exception is thrown, of course.

For each user, all the passwords are stored in a database. All passwords are strongly encrypted.


In the file we add


        'NAME': 'django_password_validators.password_history.password_validation.UniquePasswordsValidator',

# If you want, you can change the default hasher for the password history.
# DPV_DEFAULT_HISTORY_HASHER = 'django_password_validators.password_history.hashers.HistoryHasher'
