It seems that any "strong" password generated by Safari only uses one special character - the dash. Is there a way to configure it so that the random "strong" password will use more special characters than just the dash?

It is a problem. Actually, the strong PW really sucks sometimes. I was on a site the other day that required two unique special characters.

I believe the best you can do is edit the proposed password. I don't see any way to do what you are wanting to do.
It never lets me edit Safari's suggested strong password when having to put something in.


How I do it is use an existing strong PW that I have saved to my keychain by copy and paste, then add the extra characters that are required, such as two or more unique special characters.
