How the Password Testing Tool Works

This password Testing Tool checks for secure password best practices and assigns requirement a score. That score fits into either a very weak, weak, strong or very strong password and also gives a time-frame that a hacker would probably take to hack it. This tool checks for lowercase and uppercase letters, numbers and symbols and finds any patterns or other common password mistakes.

Any password you enter here is not stored anywhere - testing is all done on this page and no data is sent or saved from this tool.

  2. Use a Virtual Private Network
    While passwords keep unauthorized users out of accounts, Internet Service Providers can still track a user's online activity as well as their devices' private IP addresses. The only way to hide web activity and IP addresses is to connect not directly to a public Wi-Fi network, but instead to a VPN, which stands for Virtual Private Network.

  3. Use a Password Manager
    Password managers store users' usernames and passwords in encrypted vaults, requiring only master passwords or biometrics to log into accounts.
