This extension extends the core functionality of the customer module of Magento. The features of this extension are:

  • Customers are temporarily deactivated if wrong password is entered too often.
  • Password can be validated and rejected (password strength, password length, ..)

The extension can now be configured: System -> Configuration -> Customer -> Customer Configuration -> Password

The following extra options are available:

  • Lock after x attempts: The number of allowed failed login attempts before the customer account is locked
  • Lock attempt span: The time period within which the above attempts are allowed to be made
  • Lock time: The number of seconds for which the account will be locked
  • Check minimum Password length: Should the password length be checked (When the customer creates an account)
  • Minimum Password length: The minimum allowed password length. If this value is set below or equal to zero the default value (8) will be used.
  • Check Password complexity: Check password against the default complexity definition, where it should contain at least one uppercase character, one lowercase character and one digit.
