#34820 closed feature request (duplicate)

Expand users table user_pass field from 64 to 255 characters

I'd like to suggest expanding the users table user_pass field from 64 to 255 characters to allow the PHP >= 5.5 password_hash() function PASSWORD_DEFAULT option to generate a character string up to 255 characters as new and strong algorithms are added. This would allow plugins that override the default password hashing functions to not be limited to the PASSWORD_BCRYPT option going forward. Would really like to see this in WordPress 4.4.
