    Anyway to require password length to be less than 10 characters? (it forces a 10 char min when I need to do a 8 char min) :(

    I'm interested in this too.

    I manage about 40 WP sites, so I know the value of this plugin when I get the emails telling me I've been protected.

    However, I just launched a forum site for a client, and he's asked multiple times to tone down the password strength.

    I'm willing to put up with it, but he's not. It's either make it less than 10 characters, or find another security plugin.

    PS: Thanks for the great plugin.

    Cheers
    Tim

    Nope. This is about everyone's security. From LSS' home page:

    You're probably thinking "There's nothing valuable on my website. No one will bother breaking into it." What you need to realize is that attackers are going after your visitors. They put stealth code on your website that pushes malware into your readers' browsers.

    Maybe, but in my site we have only 1-2 administrators which know each other and have very strong passwords. The others are all subscribers.

    Furthermore I really don't think that 10 characters needed. What I think would be optimal for me is 7-8 characters with numbers and capital letters.

    I love your concern for our user's security - but going back to a thread from a year ago - is would be great to just change it to >=7 to match WordPress's password hint.

    Or - is there a way to change the password hint yet? It's pretty improtant that user's understand what the password requirements are.

    There was a tweak in the plugin doing that. It got broke by a change in WordPress. I released 0.46.0 the other day to fix it.
