Repeated Characters Password Validator

The Repeated Characters Password Validator is used to determine whether a proposed password is acceptable based on the number of times any character appears consecutively in a password value.

It ensures that user passwords do not contain strings of the same character repeated several times, like "aaaaaa" or "aaabbb".

Parent

The Repeated Characters Password Validator object inherits from Password Validator.
