    I have a testing WP site which has a weak password, I used Wordfence Scan and under Scanning for weak passwords the result was Secure :/
    how is that?

    Thanks for reporting this. I currently have this logged as an issue. Just to be clear, when we do the PW check, we're essentially brute forcing your passwords which is very CPU intensive and we've had to make a tradeoff between hogging your production website's CPU and doing a comprehensive password strength test. However I do already have this logged and we're looking at alternatives.

    Thanks again.
