    You’re now telling me what password I choose is “too weak”? So I can’t match my WordPress passwords to my other non-high security passwords? What is up with that?

    The blog I need help with is theborischangreport.wordpress.com.

    Matching passwords is not a secure practice. Using a unique long password with any combination of letters, numbers, and special characters for every account and site is a secure practice.

    match my WordPress passwords to my other non-high security passwords?

    Will be non-high until someone gets the password and wipes your blog – we see that on a regular basis here in the forum – sometimes years of work and memories gone in a flash

    Using a password I cannot remember means I have to write it down somewhere. How secure is that?

    I’d like to make the choice how many letters and numbers and special characters etc. etc. go into my password – not someone else.

    Also, I backup my stuff. I copy and paste into the blog from my word processor. Why not let me worry about how much security I need?
