LoginPress New Features
1. Password Miss-match Custom Error Message:
Are you tired of the same default error messages? We added a new addition to the error messages you can customize for your users.
An error message is generated for password mismatch during registration. You can customize the error message that is displayed when users enter two different passwords. It is a great way to provide personalized error messages.
Note: See our detailed guide for Customize Passwords Don’t Match Error Message with LoginPress.
2. Force Password Reset Functionality
Regularly updating your passwords reduces your chances of exposure and prevents almost 80% of security breaches.
To ensure this, we added a new feature: Force Password Reset. Upon enabling, users who register on your site will now be forced to reset their password after a specific time limit. It’s set to 6 months by default, but you can set a time limit as suitable (See screenshot below).
It is a great way to improve security by ensuring that users regularly update their passwords.
