That isn't exactly accurate.


The calculator takes into account:

1) Length
2) Number of lower case characters
3) Number of upper case characters
4) Number of digits (numerical characters), special symbols, spaces, characters not found on default keyboards
5) Dictionary words (athdgy is generally considered a safer password than banana)
6) Repeated characters (aaabbb111222 is less secure than a12bb1a12a2b)

and possibly more!

You mean because of the recent breakthrough in password cracking? Because it for sure hasn't been updated to reflect the data that thing is putting off
