MembershipUser.LastPasswordChangedDate Property

Gets the date and time when the membership user's password was last updated.

Namespace:  System.Web.Security
Assembly:  System.Web.ApplicationServices (in System.Web.ApplicationServices.dll)

public virtual DateTime LastPasswordChangedDate { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.DateTime
The date and time when the membership user's password was last updated.

The SqlMembershipProvider sets the CreationDate, LastLoginDate, LastActivityDate, and LastPasswordChangedDate date to the same date and time when a membership user is created by the CreateUser method.

The following code example shows a login page that indicates a password has expired after a specified number of days. If the LastPasswordChangedDate is earlier than the current date and time minus the number of days specified for the expiration of a password, then the user is directed to change his or her password.

Security noteSecurity Note

This example contains a text box that accepts user input, which is a potential security threat. By default, ASP.NET Web pages validate that user input does not include script or HTML elements. For more information, see Script Exploits Overview.
