    Your username and password must be spray-painted onto the sidewalk in front of your house, so that we can verify you with our drone surveillance technology.

    well, actually.

    cdbaby demands that you have at least one letter in your password, and also one capital letter

    i have another candidate for the Password Strength Checker Strength Checker

    the original, of course, is p@55w0rd/P@55w0rd/p@$$w0rd/P@$$w0rd

    the second is !@#$%12345 or 12345!@#$%

    again, how to use: enter this into a site that purports to rate your password's strength. if they say any of these passwords is a good idea, their password strength checker is a load of crap.

    I guess it's looking at character class types. Add a capital and suddenly it becomes better.
  • Ultimate Forum Poster
    As I understand it, that's how it often works, some factor based what "kind" of password it is (no caps, whole words, etc.) times its length (characters/words).



    After all, if it's not a given that the first character is not capitalized (and not a number/symbol), that's twice as many possible passwords to guess from.

    It's tax filing season in the United States!

    Let's do our taxes using Intuit TurboTax, one of the tax filing companies that probably exists because they keep lobbying Congress to not make the IRS make tax filing any easier so they keep on getting to make middleman money.

    Whoops, we forgot our Intuit password, or we need to create a new account. The password must:
    Use 8 or more characters
    Use upper and lower case letters (e.g. Aa)
    Use a number (e.g. 1234)
    Use a symbol (e.g. !@#$)
    No spaces allowed [this last condition only appears if you type a space]

    Guess how many of these passwords are evaluated as "STRONG"?
    P@SSw0rd
    P@55w0rd
    Password1234!@#$
    Aa1234!@#$
    Useanumber(e.g.1234)
    MyIntuitPassword1234!@#$
    1234qwer!@#$QWER
    asdfASDF1234!@#$
    11!!qqQQ
    

    Made your guess? Don't give a crap?

    Well, the answer is, all of them.

    What even is the point of your password strength meter? It automatically evaluates ANY nonsense fulfilling all the criteria as STRONG.

    Creating an account on Uplay to take advantage of the free Child of Light and Rayman Legends that they're offering right now? Create a password!
    Should be between 8 and 16 characters in length and contain both letters and numbers.

    !!QQ11qq - pretty good
    @QQWW1122 - pretty good
    @QQWW1122qqww - as soon as I type that first lowercase q, it starts saying the password is great.

    This password strength meter isn't too bad; it doesn't outright tell me that "p@ssw0rd" is a great idea. Also, to its credit, it does this:

    [the login name for the account] - not allowed.

    However, the strength meter is very strongly dependent on password length and presence of special characters. If I input a password consisting of mashing the keyboard to get 16 random letters and numbers (even if I have a space somewhere) it only goes up to "pretty good". Here's some testing:

    p98we4rluj4orjoj - pretty good
    p98we4rluj4SLIJE - pretty good
    p98we4rl - mediocre
    p98we4rlPOIJWERJ - pretty good
    p98we4rlPOIJWER# - great!
    aaaa1111AAAA!!!! - great!
    aa11AA!! - pretty good
    apwoieja;oidsjf0 - pretty good
    ":Loieja;oidsjf0 - pretty good
    &^Loieja;oidsjf0 - great!
    !!aa11AA!!aa - pretty good
    !!aa11AA!!aa1 - great!
    !!aa11AAAAAA - pretty good (12 characters)
    !!aa11AAAAAAA - great!
    !!aa11AAAAAAAA - great!
    !!aa11AAAAAAAAA - great!
    !!aa11AAAAAAAAAA - great!
    !!aa11aaaaaaaaaaaa - pretty good (16 characters)

    Yeah, it's just so blatantly length-depedent and character-set-dependent. As long as you have at least two symbols, at least all four character groups represented (top row symbols, numbers, lowercase, and uppercase are represented, and at least 13 slots are filled, you get a top marks.

    The only oddity so far is that apparently non-top-row symbols don't count as symbols:

    !!aa11AAAAAAAAAA - great!
    [[aa11AAAAAAAAAA - pretty good
    ;;aa11AAAAAAAAAA - pretty good

    Firefox can now generate hyper-random passwords and save them immediately.

    I want to trust this but I really can't.

    Generating random passwords is easy. If I'm fine with pseudo-randomness I can just smash the keyboard, with or without Shift depressed as applicable. Normally this is all that'd be needed anyway.

    I'm not sure why I'd trust the browser to save my passwords for me. To be fair, the browser already does read my passwords. But still, one less thing that could be attacked. I can't defend against a malicious browser itself, but at least I can defend to some extent against a negligible browser.
  • There is love everywhere, I already know
    Firefox now has access to my computer's general login credentials (to use for verification for other things).

    I did not consent to this or even know about it until I absolutely had to.

    Thanks, auto-updates.
