How do I turn off strong password on registration form?

By default, strong passwords are turned on for user registration. The strong password conditions require each password to have at least 1 letter and number and at least 1 uppercase and 1 lowercase letter.

Whilst this helps to make user accounts on your website more secure, you can turn off forcing users to have a strong password if you do not wish to use this feature.
