    Hi All,

    Does anyone know if changing the Password Strength works retrospectively for existing passwords or only for newly created ones?

    You are correct infopro, it will only apply to newly created accounts or future password changes. There is no way for it to check the strength of current/past passwords, since they're stored in a hashed format, and I do not believe the strength score at creation is logged anywhere.
