How Strong is your password? Passwordmeter.com

How strong is your password?

Check out www.passwordmeter.com

  • Great usability
  • Great visuals for feedback
  • You can download it – to prevent your password being sent over insecure HTTP connections.

Whats wrong with it?

  • Insecure connection – it does not use https, it sends your password over an unsecured connection
  • The website operator and ISP could detect your password

In conclusion:

This is a great example of brilliant usability and great feedback, sadly let down by a lack of security.  The Zurich ICO uses HTTPS to check your password, and I would love to see http://www.passwordmeter.com implement secure connections too.
