With increasing numbers of transactions occurring online, the issue of password security is becoming more and more important. Basic passwords (such as “Password1”) are becoming increasingly insufficient for your security. But how do you check if your password for a particular website is ‘strong’ enough? The How Secure is My Password website allows you to check your password integrity and even gives an estimate of how long it could potentially take to ‘crack’ your password. For example “Password1” could potentially cracked instantly, but adding in special characters and numbers can increase your security. You can also use the website to create a secure password, and is also useful to test potential passwords. To check your password security just go to www.security.org/how-secure-is-my-password/
