#53234 new defect (bug)

Application password access text is misleading for Super Admins

Description

The helper text for application passwords on a Multisite installation states:

Application passwords grant access to all {n} blogs in this installation that you have permissions on.

This is misleading for a Super Admin because an application password for a Super Admin grants access to all sites on the network, not just ones that they are a member of.

This text should be different for Super Admins. Something along the lines of:

Application passwords grant access to all sites on the network as you have Super Admin rights.
