    If users enter a : in their password it messes up the ht access plugin.

    Is there a way to filter out : from the password and let them know that it is not supported?

    What aMember version you have?
    Plugin should encrypt passwords when create htpasswd file, so this does not matter what symbols user have in password.

    I am using version:

    3.2.3PRO

    It doesn't encrypt passwords.
