I entered an 8 character password, both upper and lowercase and special characters and it was rejected as not strong enough. This PW works everywhere else I use it. Has somebody gone completely nuts? Terry O’Keefe The blog I need help with is tryoutwp.wordpress.com. June 24, 2013 at 4:43 pm #1321554 timethiefMember This is a multiuser blogging platform. The security settings are tight. http://en.support.wordpress.com/selecting-a-strong-password/ June 24, 2013 at 4:44 pm #1321555 timethiefMember This PW works everywhere else I use it. That’s the problem. We never use the same p[password on multiple sites as that makes all of our accounts vulnerable to hacking.

If that list has been leaked to the public, I wouldn’t be surprised if WP.com has banned it as insecure. June 24, 2013 at 5:17 pm #1321575 timethiefMember No kidding.
