Make strong passwords optional
Our members are leaving since the new password requirements have become a pain. We are a club with mostly 65+ year old members (over 200) and it took 6 years to have them except using emails for club membership. They have arthritis, poor eye vision and have trouble remembering what they had for breakfast. I send out a monthly newsletter and now people are asking for help constantly. They cannot open the monthly news without being prompted for a new password and they don't know it or what a 12 digit with special characters means. We really need our old password system back or more people will be quitting the club.
Agree with the comments, give us settings to decide the password strenght requirements.

We have the same problem with our 65+ aged members. Add that to the Captcha photo challenges that seemingly appear at random and it makes using this platform a real PITA. And we're paying more for what?
Allow us to decide what the password requirements are like most enterprise systems do. Options include password length; how often a password can be reused; whether a special character is needed; etc.
Change the password requirement back. It is way too complicated! Our members are older and no one can seem to log in. We will have to cancel Wild Apricot if no one can log in.

I administrate WA for two different organizations that are very different--a political club and an HOA. In both cases, logging in can be a challenge for our elderly members, and long passwords are a barrier for full use of the system.
