comment How does the password become 30,000 times stronger?
@JekwA Using 7-bit ASCII, I count 127-32=95 printable characters. Minus 10 digits and 52 letters (uppercase and lowercase), you get 33 special characters, which includes space. Excluding space you have 32 special characters. Both get close to 30,000 (one above, one below).

comment How does the password become 30,000 times stronger?
@user80723 No, it's just ones and zeros to the computer. The byte 00111000 (which we read as 8) is the same to a computer as the byte 00100001 (which we read as !).

comment Is writing to /dev/null secure?
@ott-- sure, though it's sort of inconvenient if every user overwrites the file (stdout > /dev/null) instead of appending. That's why I made it a fifo... but of course you're right :)

revised Can Netflix tell whether I am behind a VPN?
The asker doesn't know whether Netflix can do this (the question says so). Removed "How" from title to reflect this.
