Comment (by nico_martin):

 As soon as the user '''sees''' a new Password there is a big chance he
 missunderstands it as his new password.

 Better labeling would might help a little bit, but it would not solve the
 problem. Honestly, who reads those instructions? Most users need to have
 it self-explained.

 What if the input would be empty, but there is a possibility to generate a
 strong PW (maybe one the bottom left? The strength indicator is of course
 a must).
 That would ensure the user takes action.
