Prevent users from reusing recently used passwords.


You can install the package via composer:

composer require infinitypaul/laravel-password-history-validation


To get started, you'll need to publish the config file, and migrate the database:

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=password-config

Modify the config file according to your project, then migrate the database

php artisan migrate


This package will observe the created and updated event of the models (check the config file for settings) and records the password hashes automatically.

In Your Form Request or Inline Validation, All You Need To Do Is Instantiate The NotFromPasswordHistory class passing the current user as an argument

use Infinitypaul\LaravelPasswordHistoryValidation\Rules\NotFromPasswordHistory;

$this->validate($request, [
            'password' => [
                new NotFromPasswordHistory($request->user())

Cleaning Up Old Record - (Optional)

Because We Are Storing The Hashed Password In Your Database, Your Database Can Get Long When You Have Lots Of Users

Add PasswordHistoryTrait To Your User Model

use Infinitypaul\LaravelPasswordHistoryValidation\Traits\PasswordHistoryTrait;

class User extends Authenticatable
    use Notifiable, PasswordHistoryTrait;


Then You Can Run The Following Artisan Command

php artisan password-history:clear
