Purpose of the Mod

The warning (which is defined as a language string) is displayed if the Account Registration page is not encrypted. Note that, even if the site supports encryption, if the site does not force encryption, the Account Registration page might be unencrypted.

$text['rrnaw-warning'] .= "And don't just add a suffix to a standard password; use something completely different.";
