Password and Confirm Password Validation in Laravel

It’s always a good idea to put a password confirmation field in your forms, since password is a masked field and the user would never know if they made a typing mistake while filling out the password.

In this article we will see how easy it is in Laravel to do validation for the password confirmation field.

On the backend validation you just need to use the confirmed validation rule for your password field.

 
$request->validate([
    'password' => 'required|confirmed|min:6'
]);

Also in your HTML, you need to make sure the password field used to input confirmation from user must be named password_confirmation


<input id="password" type="password" name="password_confirmation" required>
