Armor Score - Strong Guest Password (2.4G)

I have the Netgear Orbi RBRE960 and I'm receiving the recommendation within Armor to have a Strong Guest Password.  The password I'm using is just as strong as the primary wifi network and I'm not receiving an error for that network.  It far exceeds the minimum requirements so I'm not clear why I keep getting this notification.  Is this a bug in Armor?

Hi @Retired_Member

 

Welcome to NETGEAR Community!

 

How many characters (upper case, lower case, number and special character) is your password made of? 

 

Just to be clear, the Guest network password and the main WiFi password are different. Right? 

 

Can you also post a screenshot of the notification?

Hi Blanca,

 

My guest password is more than double the minimum requirement and contains all 4 types of characters.  It's also not the same password as my main wifi network.  I've attached a screenshot from the mobile app.  Thanks!

Hi @Retired_Member

 

Engineering team is planning to remove this recommendation card. Kindly ignore this for a few weeks and should not interrupt any functionality.

@Blanca_O Thank you.  Have you heard any word from engineering on when this will be resolved?  It's been almost two months, and I'm still showing this inaccurate alert.
