    User information being leaked or hacked (like a database) is usually/always stored in some kind of encryption, passwords that contains dots, commas, etc is much harder to decrypt than passwords only containing numbers or letters. So the text below number 4. “Your Password becomes harder to crack if it consists of 8 or 9 characters which also includes numbers, letters and special characters” should be in bold if you would ask me.
