Why You Need a Password Strength Checker
Just a decade ago, hacking was a way to entertain. Today, online security has become a cornerstone of businesses and the human lifestyle. Many areas of our lives have gone online - from banking and taxes to cooking and music. We have a myriad of logins and passwords to log in to our accounts every day. But how can you know that your sensitive information is safe?
Meet the best Password Strength Checker. At first blush, it is a simple tool to check the strength of your passwords. But in some cases, it can be a real lifesaver for your security. We’ll help you to recognize vulnerabilities in your credentials and give advice on how to create a stronger and more secure combination of characters.
Common Mistakes in Creating Passwords
Entering a password to log in to one of a dozen services becomes our everyday routine. That’s why users create simple and easy-to-remember combinations of characters unheeding the basic requirements of password-making. That is a serious mistake made by billions of people trying to protect a part of their digital identity. Let’s have a look at other common mistakes and find out how to avoid them in the future and why you need a password strength checker.
To stay secure it is better to avoid the following combinations of characters: “123456,” “qwerty” or “password.” Many hackers use special software and brute-force attacks, and it will take them a few seconds to guess this password.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology recommends checking your password against lists of commonly used or known compromised ones. You can use the Passwarden security meter to check out if your created password is secure or not.
One of the worst things you can do with one password is to reuse it in other accounts. Using the same combination across multiple sites can cause massive data leakage and bring you to the loss of all your accounts.
Using your birth dates or the names of your relatives or pets is not the best practice. Hometowns, wedding dates, or anything else that can be learned after some research are not recommended as well. You can check this out in our password strength meter.
They say: Don't put all your eggs in one basket. Especially, if that basket is kept on your computer or smartphone. Don’t keep your created passwords, no matter how strong they are, in one file. You can lose all of them at once in the case of hacking your device by third parties.
The technique of swapping letters by digits is well known to hackers. So, when you swap a “5” for an “S” or “0” to “O” in dictionary words it doesn’t make you much more secure. But it is still recommended to use digits, symbols, and letters to meet the basic security requirements.
