Password Strength Tool
Here’s an example of a strong complex password +IloveEating1cEcrEAM!!_1988
Compare that with a simple, yet week password like Happy88
It’s a fun and informative site!
(Note: It’s recommended that you don’t actually type in a password you intend to use. It’s more a learning tool.)
Speaking of passwords, Requisiteness.com recommends using the following elements to create a strong password:
- Upper case letters.
- Lower case letters.
- Special characters.
- At least 16 characters.
And never use the same password for multiple online accounts! (Unless you want a hacker who might compromise your Facebook account to also access you Amazon account, bank account, Google account, etc.)
