I cannot set my desired password for my GitHub account, because it is considered “weak” and so I’m not allowed to use it.
But it’s strong enough according to the rules:
**Eight characters long, if it includes a number and a lowercase letter**, or 16 characters long with any combination of characters
My password has 9 characters, one number and several lowercase and uppercase letters.
Even if this would be considered a weak password, why does the information above states that 8 characters, one number, and one lowercase letter should be enough?
