Force Password Change

A WordPress plugin that requires users to change their password on first login.

  • Tags: password, passwords, user, users, registration, register, force, require, login, user control
  • Requires at least: 3.2
  • Tested up to: 4.1
  • Stable tag: trunk
  • License: GPL v2 or later


This is a WordPress plugin that redirects newly-registered users to the Admin -> Edit Profile page when they first log in. Until they have changed their password, they will not be able to access either the front-end or other admin pages. An admin notice is also displayed informing them that they must change their password.

New administrators must also change their password, but as a safety measure they can also access the Admin -> Plugins page.
