I have an issue with the confirmation password validation on creating the account and reset password pages and showing the following error although the passwords match?

Please enter the same value again.

Any ideas on how to resolve the issues? I haven't got any JS console errors.

I have the same issue, I believe it is because I added modal login/register form to all pages in my theme. The register modal has a field with id="password" I think the validator is checking this value rather than the desired input.

I have not fixed/tested this theory yet but it would make sense. Double check to ensure you do not have an additional id="password" on these pages


Should check your template again.

1) Make sure we didn't need change id of password element. Because the confirmation password based on it:


data-validate="{required:true, equalTo:'#password'}"

2) Should try to debug the Js: https://developers.google.com/web/tools/chrome-devtools/javascript/. My Magento version is 2.2.0 and the Js validation is jquery.validate.js. In your Browser (I used Chrome), open Sources Tab and debug.

enter image description here

  • The ID of the password input matches what the data-validate is referencing, and jquery.validate.js is getting added to the page but still doesn't seem to be working. Do I need to add this to my require config file?

  • Did you override this file vendor/magento/module-customer/view/frontend/templates/form/register.phtml? Commented Dec 5, 2017 at 10:10
  • I haven't updated any of the phtml files to do with this :/

  • Do you use a Magento fresh install? I tested on Magento 2.2.0 version. Commented Dec 5, 2017 at 16:30
