    Default Changing the Magento Login to Case Sensitive

    When you log into the Magento 1.6 admin panel, by default it is not case sensitive. Forcing the login to be case sensitive will improve the security of your Magento shopping cart and backend. It becomes increasingly harder to hack passwords if they are case sensitive. Changing the default setting to force logins to be case sensitive is done through your Magento 1.6 Admin Panel.






    • Log into your Magento Admin Panel
    • Go to System ->> Configuration
    • In the left menu pane, scroll down and click "Admin" under the "Advanced" heading
    • Open the section labeled "Security"
    • Find the "Login is Case Sensitive" and change the dropdown to "Yes"
    • Click “Save Config

    Create an observer to listen for an event fired while creating the customer account, and run the email address through the strtolower() function.

    Also have an observer on the login checks (I'm sure there is an event you could listen to) and run the email through the strtolower function again. You should be golden!

    If you don't want to use observers, you could look for a JavaScript-based solution..
