How to set minimum number of characters for user password in django-allauth

I want to change the ACCOUNT_PASSWORD_MIN_LENGTH in django-allauth. I tried ACCOUNT_PASSWORD_MIN_LENGTH = 5 in settings.py and it is not working, Django is still saying that I need to enter 8 characters, like it is by default.

Here is my settings.py file:

Answer

According to django docs, you need to specify OPTIONS dict together with built in django password validator, like this:

AUTH_PASSWORD_VALIDATORS = [
    {
        'NAME': 'django.contrib.auth.password_validation.UserAttributeSimilarityValidator',
    },
    {
        'NAME': 'django.contrib.auth.password_validation.MinimumLengthValidator',
        'OPTIONS': {
            'min_length': 5,
        },
    },
    {
        'NAME': 'django.contrib.auth.password_validation.CommonPasswordValidator',
    },
    {
        'NAME': 'django.contrib.auth.password_validation.NumericPasswordValidator',
    },
]
