Minimal jQuery Password Strength Indicator - PasswordRulesHelper

PasswordRulesHelper is a simple, tiny jQuery plugin that provides a visual feedback to help users meet your minimum password requirements. The plugin checks and measures the strength of a password using predefined or custom regex strings and displays the valid / invalid messages inside a rule list.

How to use it:

1. Make sure you first have jQuery installed and then include the jQuery PasswordRulesHelper plugin's JS & CSS files on the webpage as follows:

<!-- JQuery -->
<script src="//"></script>

<!-- Password Rules Helper -->
<script src="passwordRulesHelper.min.js"></script>
<link href="passwordRulesHelper.min.css" rel="stylesheet">

2. Just call the plugin on the target password field and done.


3. Default password requirements:

  • 8 characters
  • 1 lowercase
  • 1 uppercase
  • 1 digit
  • 1 special character
  'rules' : {
    'length' : {
        'regex': '.{8,}',
        'name': 'length',
        'message': '8 characters',
        'enable': true
    'lowercase' :{
        'regex': '[a-z]{1,}',
        'name': 'lowercase',
        'message': '1 lowercase',
        'enable': true
    'uppercase' : {
        'regex': '[A-Z]{1,}',
        'name': 'uppercase',
        'message': '1 uppercase',
        'enable': true
    'number' : {
        'regex': '[0-9]{1,}',
        'name': 'number',
        'message': '1 digit',
        'enable': true
    'specialChar' : {
        'regex': '[^a-zA-Z0-9]{1,}',
        'name': 'special-char',
        'message': '1 special character',
        'enable': true

    //  your custom rules here


4. Default options for the rule list.

  'msgRules': 'Your password must contain :',
  'container': undefined,
