How to increase the maximum password limit with Multipass

I recently got a question from a Multipass user who had about 250 passwords, but found that they had reached a limit and were now unable to create additional passwords beyond the 250.

As it turns out, it’s very easy to increase the maximum password limit. Note that you will have to be using Hide My Site Multipass in order to follow along.

The underlying problem

The password limit is controlled by the max_input_vars value in your php settings. The default value for max_input_vars is 1000. If you increase this value, you will be able to save additional passwords.

Increasing max_input_vars

Here are three ways to increase max_input_vars:

1. You can increase max_input_vars via your php.ini file, like this:

2. Or you can increase max_input_vars via .htaccess, like this:

3. If you are unable to change max_input_vars via php.ini or .htaccess yourself, your web host should be able to do it for you.

Thanks for taking the time to follow this tutorial. Hope you find it helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions or other feedback in the comments.
