After added database configuration, you need to run default migration of laravel by following command:

php artisan migrate

use Illuminate\Contracts\Auth\MustVerifyEmail;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Auth\User as Authenticatable;

class User extends Authenticatable implements MustVerifyEmail
{
    use Notifiable;

    protected $fillable = [
        'name', 'email', 'password',
    ];

    protected $hidden = [
        'password', 'remember_token',
    ];
}

 

Routes/web.php

Auth::routes(['verify' => true]);

app/Http/Controllers/HomeController.php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class HomeController extends Controller
{

    public function __construct()
    {
        $this->middleware(['auth','verified']);
