Google warned me that my Goodreads password was weak, so I changed it to a strong one.

The strong password worked on the website but not the Android app, so I changed my password to a weaker password, and now it works everywhere.

Considering that Goodreads is owned by a trillion dollar company, I would expect the authentication process to be subject to automated testing.

But maybe not! Maybe an intern was like, "I tried my password and it worked."

@kai A few years ago, I ran into a site that only had a minimum character count for passwords advertised, but either the password-creation-form or the login-form truncated at 15 or 16, and the other did not. Made me very confused why I could successfully create a password but then not login with it.
