Hints do not hide after 8 characters

//Problem: Hints are shown even when form is valid
//Solution: Hide and show them at appropriate times

//hide hints
$("form span").hide();

function passwordEvent () {
  //password valid
  if($(this).val().length > 8) {
    //hide hint if valid
  } else {
    //else show hint

//when event happens on password input

//when event happens on confirmation
  //find out it password and confirmation match
    //hide hint if matched
    //else show hint
