I just wanted to extend a thank you to the site administrators for implementing the new password policy. As a current cybersecurity/IT student, I try to encourage everyone I know to use haveibeenpwned. Not enough people understand the severe consequences of password reuse. Kudos.

Also, since security minded people might see this post... I highly encourage everyone to look into using a password manager such as Keepass or Bitwarden. It's tedious to implement at first since you need to change every single password but it is well worth it. Just be sure your master password is strong.

Per NIST, "Password managers offer greater security and convenience for the use of passwords to access online services. Greater security is achieved principally through the capability of most password manager applications to generate unique, long, complex, easily changed passwords for all online accounts and the secure encrypted storage of those passwords either through a local or cloud-based vault. Greater convenience is provided by the use of a single master password to access the password vault rather than attempting to memorize different passwords for all accounts. Most password manager applications offer additional capabilities that enhance both convenience and security such as storage of credit card and frequent flyer information and autofill functionality."
