 Her notes:

 1. Update modal style to bring more in-line with other wp-admin modals —
 like including an "x" for closing (even though there's also a cancel
 2. Make "Proceed" primary

 connect? Proceed might be okay, it's just such a weird-sounding word.
 Maybe switch the "proceed" in both the description and the button to
 4. "This password will not be..." could stand to be decreased in size just
