    Hi michapixel,

    I appreciate your suggestion and agree that strong passwords are a necessary component for a secure blog/site. WP Password Generator was not designed to evaluate the strength of passwords, just to generate strong, non-repeating passwords for new users. Several other plugins, including Better WP Security, already have features to enhance the security of user-provided passwords (note: I haven't used Better WP Security myself, but a quick look at reviews seem to indicate a good plugin).

    As a side note, the password reset feature is pretty important for a good majority of sites and probably shouldn't be disabled. If you really need to disable the feature, there are some snippets/resources in this thread that may help.
