lower down the security password requirement for Percona xtraDB cluster 8.0,19

When setting mysql_secure_installation script in percona xtraDB cluster 8.0.19, the script will ask me what security level I want, and I select medium, any way to change it back to low ?

some password we have is very simple and might not pass  the security requirement, please suggest.

    yeah, I know, but our previous setting is low, so we better follow at this moment as all application has to change accordingly.
    set global validate_password.policy=LOW' which enforces an 8 character password with no complexity requirements.
    but this is temporary global variable, we have to add it to my.cnf :
