How to Disable Password Strength Meter in WordPress

Introduced in recent versions of WooCommerce and WordPress, there is an integrated Password Strength Meter which forces users to use strong passwords. It loads this file: /wp-includes/js/zxcvbn.min.js Depending on the theme, we’ve noticed that sometimes this file loads across the entire WordPress site. For performance reasons, this should only load on the checkout and password reset pages.
