Python Exercise: Check the validity of a password

Python Conditional: Exercise-15 with Solution

Write a Python program to check the validity of passwords input by users.

Validation :

  • At least 1 letter between [a-z] and 1 letter between [A-Z].
  • At least 1 number between [0-9].
  • At least 1 character from [$#@].
  • Minimum length 6 characters.
  • Maximum length 16 characters.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

# Import the 're' module for regular expressions
import re

# Prompt the user to input a password and store it in the variable 'p'
p = input("Input your password")

# Set 'x' to True to enter the while loop
x = True

# Start a while loop that continues until 'x' is True
while x:  
    # Check conditions for a valid password:
    # Password length should be between 6 and 12 characters
    if (len(p) < 6 or len(p) > 12):
    # Password should contain at least one lowercase letter
    elif not re.search("[a-z]", p):
    # Password should contain at least one digit
    elif not re.search("[0-9]", p):
    # Password should contain at least one uppercase letter
    elif not re.search("[A-Z]", p):
    # Password should contain at least one special character among '$', '#', '@'
    elif not re.search("[$#@]", p):
    # Password should not contain any whitespace character
    elif re.search("\s", p):
        # If all conditions are met, print "Valid Password" and set 'x' to False to exit the loop
        print("Valid Password")
        x = False

# If 'x' remains True, print "Not a Valid Password"
if x:
    print("Not a Valid Password")

Sample Output:

Input your passwordW3r@100a

Previous: Write a Python program that accepts a string and calculate the number of digits and letters.
Next: Write a Python program to find numbers between 100 and 400 (both included) where each digit of a number is an even number. The numbers obtained should be printed in a comma-separated sequence.
