Choosing a strong password for your WordPress account is a no brainer. In fact, all the passwords you use online should be very strong unless you want your accounts to get hacked. Not all WordPress webmasters allow their visitors to register for an account but if you do, you need to make sure your members are also using strong passwords. You should also reset and expire passwords every few months to be on the safe side. Here are 3 WordPress plugins you can use to reset WordPress passwords to keep your community secure:
WordPress Password Expiry: expires passwords for the selected type of users on your site every few days. Don’t expire passwords too often or you will annoy people.
