How secure is your password?

Microsoft has released a new tool that allows you to see how secure your passwords are by ranking them as either weak, medium or best.

If your current passwords don't come out too well, I can highly recommend the Random Password Generator for creating passwords.

As well as creating good random passwords, it allows you to set options such as

  1. Showing the phonetic version
  2. No Similar characters
which are very useful when you need to create an account for someone who isn't very IT literate.
