In this tutorial, we will discuss Change Password Functionality using Laravel 8. Change passwords mostly use carries a lot of sensitive and important data, so keeping work data safe is a major priority. Laravel Authentication default provided Change password functionality.

Change Password Form Page

First, we will create a change password form and the required route and controller method for the same.

Create View File

Now, create our change password view file named change-password.blade.php.



<div class="container">
    <div class="row">

        <div class="col-md-10 offset-2">
            <div class="panel panel-default">
                <h2>Change password</h2>

                <div class="panel-body">
                    @if (session('error'))
                        <div class="alert alert-danger">
                            {{ session('error') }}
                    @if (session('success'))
                        <div class="alert alert-success">
                            {{ session('success') }}
                        @foreach ($errors->all() as $error)
                            <div class="alert alert-danger">{{ $error }}</div>
                    <form class="form-horizontal" method="POST" action="{{ route('changePasswordPost') }}">
                        {{ csrf_field() }}

                        <div class="form-group{{ $errors->has('current-password') ? ' has-error' : '' }}">
                            <label for="new-password" class="col-md-4 control-label">Current Password</label>

                            <div class="col-md-6">
                                <input id="current-password" type="password" class="form-control" name="current-password" required>

                                @if ($errors->has('current-password'))
                                    <span class="help-block">
                                        <strong>{{ $errors->first('current-password') }}</strong>

                        <div class="form-group{{ $errors->has('new-password') ? ' has-error' : '' }}">
                            <label for="new-password" class="col-md-4 control-label">New Password</label>

                            <div class="col-md-6">
                                <input id="new-password" type="password" class="form-control" name="new-password" required>

                                @if ($errors->has('new-password'))
                                    <span class="help-block">
                                        <strong>{{ $errors->first('new-password') }}</strong>

                        <div class="form-group">
                            <label for="new-password-confirm" class="col-md-4 control-label">Confirm New Password</label>

                            <div class="col-md-6">
                                <input id="new-password-confirm" type="password" class="form-control" name="new-password_confirmation" required>

                        <div class="form-group">
                            <div class="col-md-6 col-md-offset-4">
                                <button type="submit" class="btn btn-primary">
                                    Change Password


Now, the user is logged in, and if you go to then you should display the below page.

Create Controller

I create new HomeController and add the supporting controller method show_change_password_form in Controller. But you are free to put it in any other controller or create a separate controller for the change-password functionality. And we can make sure that only authenticated users can access the change password functionality.

Post Change Password Request

  1. We check the following things.
  2. The current password and the new password should not be same.
  3. Current password provided by user it should match in the database. And we check this by
  4. using Hash::check method.
  5. New password Validate requirements, new password and confirm password should be same.
  6. Change the password for the user account and redirect back with the success message.


namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use App\Models\User;
use Hash;
use Auth;

class HomeController extends Controller
    public function showChangePasswordGet() {
        return view('auth.passwords.change-password');

    public function changePasswordPost(Request $request) {
        if (!(Hash::check($request->get('current-password'), Auth::user()->password))) {
            // The passwords matches
            return redirect()->back()->with("error","Your current password does not matches with the password.");

        if(strcmp($request->get('current-password'), $request->get('new-password')) == 0){
            // Current password and new password same
            return redirect()->back()->with("error","New Password cannot be same as your current password.");

        $validatedData = $request->validate([
            'current-password' => 'required',
            'new-password' => 'required|string|min:8|confirmed',

        //Change Password
        $user = Auth::user();
        $user->password = bcrypt($request->get('new-password'));

        return redirect()->back()->with("success","Password successfully changed!");


Add routes

Add the below code into your route file.



Route::get('/changePassword', [App\Http\Controllers\HomeController::class, 'showChangePasswordGet'])->name('changePasswordGet');
Route::post('/changePassword', [App\Http\Controllers\HomeController::class, 'changePasswordPost'])->name('changePasswordPost');

===== OR Authentication check =====

Route::group(['middleware' => 'auth'], function() {
    Route::get('/changePassword',[App\Http\Controllers\HomeController::class, 'showChangePasswordGet'])->name('changePasswordGet');
    Route::post('/changePassword',[App\Http\Controllers\HomeController::class, 'changePasswordPost'])->name('changePasswordPost');


Add link

We are looking to include the change Password link in the username top corner right side in the navigation bar. Include the below snippet in your resources/views/layouts/app.blade.php file:



<div class="dropdown-menu dropdown-menu-right" aria-labelledby="navbarDropdown">
    <a class="dropdown-item" href="{{ route('logout') }}"
        {{ __('Logout') }}
    <!-- Change password -->
    <a class="dropdown-item" href="{{ route('changePasswordGet') }}">Change Password </a>

    <form id="logout-form" action="{{ route('logout') }}" method="POST" class="d-none">


current password does not matches
current password does not match
new password cannot be same as your current password
the new password cannot be the same as your current password
new password must be at least 8 characters
the new password must be at least 8 characters
password successfully changes
password successfully changes
