What Are The Test Cases For Login Page

In the world of software testing, one of the most critical areas to focus on is the login page. As users, we encounter login pages on a daily basis, whether it’s for our favorite social media platforms, online banking, or even accessing our work applications. As a software tester, it’s our responsibility to thoroughly test the login page to ensure its security, functionality, and usability.

When it comes to testing the login page, there are several test cases that we should consider. Let’s dive deep into each of these test cases:

1. Valid Credentials:

This is the most basic test case where we enter valid credentials (username and password) and check if the system allows us to log in successfully. It’s important to test different combinations of valid credentials to ensure that all possible scenarios are covered.

2. Invalid Credentials:

In this test case, we intentionally enter invalid credentials and check if the system appropriately handles them. The login page should display an error message indicating that the credentials are incorrect.

3. Forgot Password:

Many login pages have a “Forgot Password” feature that allows users to reset their passwords in case they forget them. This test case involves testing the functionality of the “Forgot Password” feature, ensuring that users can successfully reset their passwords.

4. Account Lockout:

To enhance security, many applications implement an account lockout mechanism that temporarily locks an account after a certain number of failed login attempts. This test case involves testing the account lockout functionality by entering incorrect credentials multiple times and verifying if the account gets locked as expected.

5. Password Strength:

It’s essential to test the password strength validation on the login page. This includes checking if the system enforces password requirements, such as a minimum length, the presence of special characters, and a mix of uppercase and lowercase letters. We should test different password scenarios to ensure that the system correctly validates the password strength.

6. Captcha:

To prevent automated bots from bruteforcing login pages, many applications utilize Captcha verification. This test case involves testing the Captcha functionality to ensure that users are prompted to complete the Captcha verification before logging in.

7. Remember Me:

The “Remember Me” feature allows users to stay logged in even after closing the browser. This test case involves testing the functionality of the “Remember Me” feature, ensuring that users can successfully stay logged in for an extended period.

These are just a few examples of the test cases that we should consider when testing a login page. It’s important to note that every application is unique, and additional test cases may be required based on the specific requirements and functionalities of the login page.


Testing the login page is crucial to ensure the security and usability of an application. By thoroughly testing the test cases mentioned above, we can identify and fix any potential issues, providing users with a smooth and secure login experience. Remember, testing is a continuous process, and it’s essential to adapt and update the test cases based on the evolving application requirements.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, it’s time to test my own login page and make sure everything is working smoothly!
