Longer password. Ok, but why?

When I registered back in 2012 I used a 6-characters password (on Wikipedia, it is still valid). When I became administrator (in 2016), I had to change it to a 8-characters password. Today, I had to change it to a 10-characters password. I am fine with that, but why do passwords requirements change? It is just curiosity. --Abacos (talk) 11:27, 29 June 2020 (UTC)
