There is actually a message of returning on passwords of unknown strength, do you suggest on changing it to something more clear maybe?

The meters messages currently are: unknown, short, bad, good, strong, mismatch

scripts-loader.php line 476

'unknown'  => _x( 'Password strength unknown', 'password strength' ),

Is there any way to reliably reproduce this? I tried it once and I couldn't, but I'd like to avoid having to register an infinite number of accounts…

@arvindsinghu Did you use any non-roman characters or numbers?

While attempting to debug this I ran into #3390 and #3391.

I did see this issue once, momentarily. I believe the unknown text is what is shown while the rest of the password strength JS is loaded async, if that load fails it'll display this.
I'm thinking maybe an adblocker or some security software may be getting triggered by the password files.

I'm thinking maybe an adblocker or some security software may be getting triggered by the password files.

Let's close this for now then. Feel free to reopen when there is a way to reliable reproduce this bug, beyond a loading lag of the script.
