Really cool visually, but you may want to find another use case for such a checklist component because such password checklists are considered an antipattern for a few years now.

Thanks Thomas. This is good to know. I didn't realize. I saw one out on the web and tried to make my own for fun. Why do you think it's considered an antipattern?

Those restrictions don't make passwords more secure, annoy everyone, and make using password generators (hence password managers) harder. NIST, NCSC, etc. recommend against them.

See troyhunt.com/passwords-evolved-aut... for example.
