Create a password field in Django model

The methods explained in this post can be used to create a password field in the forms created using the Django model.
# models.py
from django import models

class Student(models.Model):
    username = models.CharField(max_length=60)
    password = models.CharField(max_length=30)


# forms.py
from django import forms

class StudentForm(forms.ModelForm):
    password = forms.CharField(widget=forms.PasswordInput)

    class Meta:
        model = Student

In the above code snippet:

  1. Created a Django model named Student in models.py file and created two fields in it - username and password.
  2. We want to show the password field in password format on the form created using Django forms.
  3. In the forms.py file, we have created a form named StudentForm and for the password field, we have used widget=forms.PasswordInput to show it as a password input on the form.

Note that we are using widget=forms.PasswordInput in forms.py not on models.py or views.py

You can also use the below code to make a model field password.

from django import forms

class StudentForm(forms.ModelForm):
    class Meta:
        model = Student
        widgets = {
           'password': forms.PasswordInput(),
        }
# models.py
from django import models

class Employee(models.Model):
    name = models.CharField(max_length=30)
    password = models.CharField(max_length=20)


# forms.py
from django import forms

class EmployeeForm(forms.ModelForm):
    password = forms.CharField(widget=forms.PasswordInput)

    class Meta:
        model = Employee
Here, we have created a model named Employee and we are creating its field password to password format.
