Hey there 👋
I’m not sure I’m in the right place to suggest something but here I go:
Are there plans to make WordPress password management more “understandable”?

Let me explain :
when my users need to change their password (after a lost password or an expiration), the “Save password” is confusing, most forget to copy/paste this password somewhere and understand that the password has been saved.

If in addition the user is used to having his browser save his passwords, the confusion is even greater: the user clicks on “Save password”, returns to the login page, the browser automatically fills in the fields (with the old password) and obviously… login failure!

I use cPanel and just had to create a new database, I find the user experience more explicit: I have a “Password generator” button and then a mandatory checkbox “I have copied this password in a safe place.” then finally a “Use password”.

What do you think ? Am I the only one who thinks these steps deserve a better UX? 😬
