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
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.
