Weak Password

I’m trying to create an account on a website. It requires a password so I used 1Password’s Strong Password Generator and entered these 10 characters: gis7ush8su.

The website form didn’t like my password and presented me with this beautifully formatted piece of prose:

The password does not include enough variation to be secure. Try: Adding both upper and lowercase letters. Adding punctuation.

I entered a new 24 character password: Fa6wrerd8ij2ac1yap9Nir1G. The website form rated my password strength as medium and stopped me again with this message:

The password does not include enough variation to be secure. Try: Adding punctuation.

Unbelievable.

Just for fun I entered abC-123 and the submission form accepted my password and rated this password strength as high.

Wow!
