⚠️ Deprecation Warning: This package is still maintained but it does not get any new features. For new projects I recommend using Laravel's built in email verification., (*2)


The Laravel Email Verification package is built for Laravel 5.4 and later to easily handle a user verification and validate the e-mail. It is inspired by crypto-based password resets and the email verification package by jrean., (*3)

  • [x] Crypto-based email verification. No need to store a temporary token in the database!
  • [x] Event based: No need to override your register() method.
  • [x] Using the Laravel 5.3 notification system.
  • [x] Allow certain routes for verified users only using the IsEmailVerified middleware.
  • [x] Let the users resend the verification email at anytime.
  • [x] Ready for Localization.


To get started, use Composer to add the package to your project's dependencies:, (*4)

composer require josiasmontag/laravel-email-verification

In Laravel 5.5 the service provider will automatically get registered. In older versions of the framework just register the Lunaweb\EmailVerification\Providers\EmailVerificationServiceProvider in your config/app.php configuration file:, (*5)

'providers' => [
    // Other service providers...



The table representing the user must be updated with a verified column. This update will be performed by the migrations included with this package., (*6)

To run the migrations from this package use the following command:, (*7)

php artisan migrate --path="/vendor/josiasmontag/laravel-email-verification/database/migrations"

The package tries to guess your user table by checking what is set in the auth providers users settings. If this key is not found, the default App\User will be used to get the table name., (*8)

To customize the migration, publish it with the following command:, (*9)

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Lunaweb\EmailVerification\Providers\EmailVerificationServiceProvider" --tag="migrations"

User Model

The model representing the User must implement the CanVerifyEmail interface. The package comes with a CanVerifyEmail trait for a quick implementation. You can customize this trait in order to change the activation email., (*10)

use Illuminate\Foundation\Auth\User as Authenticatable;
use Lunaweb\EmailVerification\Traits\CanVerifyEmail;
use Lunaweb\EmailVerification\Contracts\CanVerifyEmail as CanVerifyEmailContract;

class User extends Authenticatable implements CanVerifyEmailContract

    use CanVerifyEmail;

    // ...

Register Controller

The package offers a VerifiesEmail trait for your RegisterController. You must update the middleware exception to allow verify routes to be access by authenticated users., (*11)

use Lunaweb\EmailVerification\Traits\VerifiesEmail; class RegisterController extends Controller { use RegistersUsers, VerifiesEmail; public function __construct() { $this->middleware('guest', ['except' => ['verify', 'showResendVerificationEmailForm', 'resendVerificationEmail']]); $this->middleware('auth', ['only' => ['showResendVerificationEmailForm', 'resendVerificationEmail']]); } // ... }

There is no need to override register(). As default, the package listens for the Illuminate\Auth\Events\Registered event and sends the verification mail. You can disable this behavior using the listen_registered_event setting., (*12)


The package adds the following routes., (*13)

Route::get('register/verify', 'App\Http\Controllers\Auth\RegisterController@verify')->name('verifyEmailLink');
Route::get('register/verify/resend', 'App\Http\Controllers\Auth\RegisterController@showResendVerificationEmailForm')->name('showResendVerificationEmailForm');
Route::post('register/verify/resend', 'App\Http\Controllers\Auth\RegisterController@resendVerificationEmail')->name('resendVerificationEmail');


To register the IsEmailVerified middleware add the following to the $routeMiddleware array within the app/Http/Kernel.php file:, (*14)

protected $routeMiddleware = [
    // …
    'isEmailVerified' => \Lunaweb\EmailVerification\Middleware\IsEmailVerified::class,

Apply the middleware on your routes:, (*15)

Route::group(['middleware' => ['web', 'auth', 'isEmailVerified']], function () {


The package emits 2 events:, (*16)

  • Lunaweb\EmailVerification\Events\EmailVerificationSent
  • Lunaweb\EmailVerification\Events\UserVerified

Resend the verification mail

Using the isEmailVerified Middleware, the following form is shown to the user. It allows the user to correct his email address and resend the verification mail., (*17)

Screenshot, (*18)

You can manually point the user to this form using the showResendVerificationEmailForm route (Default: register/verify/resend)., (*19)

To programmatically resend the verification mail:, (*20)


Customize the verification mail

Therefore, override sendEmailVerificationNotification() of your User model. Example:, (*21)

class User implements CanVerifyEmailContract

    use CanVerifyEmail;

     * Send the email verification notification.
     * @param  string  $token   The verification mail reset token.
     * @param  int  $expiration The verification mail expiration date.
     * @return void
    public function sendEmailVerificationNotification($token, $expiration)
        $this->notify(new MyEmailVerificationNotification($token, $expiration));

Customize the resend form

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Lunaweb\EmailVerification\Providers\EmailVerificationServiceProvider" --tag="views"

The template can be found in resources/views/vendor/emailverification/resend.blade.php, (*22)

Customize the messages / localization

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Lunaweb\EmailVerification\Providers\EmailVerificationServiceProvider" --tag="translations"

The localization files can be found in resources/lang/vendor/emailverification, (*23)
