A good password invents harder than you think. You want them to remember, but it should be cryptic enough to protect your accounts. A smart online tool can help you come up with a stronger password.
The tool, the password meter has been developed by scientists at Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Chicago. The tool compares your password dictionaries used in brute force attacks.
A secure password
The password meter aims to explore how we can come up with better and safer passwords. Researchers have found that when given real-time advice while users enter the password, this increases security considerably.
Behind the solution is a neural network that compares the typed passwords with the aforementioned dictionaries, but also how we as people are used to combining words and numbers, a weakness that is often exploited by hackers.
