Introduction

Password validation in JavaScript is typically required in web applications for client-side validation. JavaScript regex can be used to enforce password policies, such as requiring a mix of character types and a minimum length. An example regex pattern is /^(?=.*[a-z])(?=.*[A-Z])(?=.*\\d)(?=.*[@$!%*?&])[A-Za-z\\d@$!%*?&]{8,}$/.

What is Password Regex?

The regex pattern for password validation in JavaScript includes checks for diverse character types and length.
