Tech Tip 029 — Online password strength check
When the time comes to update your password, you can check its strength at www.howsecureismypassword.net.
This is a free site which does not show your password in plaintext, nor does it save it when you type it in.
For what it’s worth, the elements of a strong password often include:
- capital and lowercase letters
- special characters
- greater than 12 total characters
