This test is just for fun and is not a real indicator of strength. To properly test your password against known breaches and information leaked on the dark web, try our other password checking tools.
We also recommend that Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is used on all accounts and that you use a unique password for every site.
If you struggle to remember all of your passwords, we recommend Keeper password manager.
Tips for creating a strong password
- Make it long: The longer your password is, the harder it is to crack. Aim for at least 12 characters, but the longer the better.
- Use a mix of characters: Use a combination of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers and symbols to make your password more complex.
- Avoid obvious personal information: Avoid using information that is easy to find, such as your name, birthdate, or address.
- Don’t reuse passwords: Use a different password for each account to prevent a data breach on one site from affecting your other accounts.
- Use a passphrase: Consider using a passphrase instead of a single word. A passphrase is a sequence of words that are easy for you to remember but difficult for others to guess.
- Use a password manager: Consider using a password manager to create and store complex passwords for you.
- Update regularly: Change your password regularly to reduce the risk of someone gaining access to your account.
- Don’t write it down: Avoid writing your password down or storing it in an unencrypted file on your computer.
- Check for security breaches: Use a tool like our password checkers to see if any of your passwords have been exposed in previous data breaches.
- Use two-factor authentication: Use two-factor authentication for extra security. This means that in addition to your password, you will need to provide another form of authentication, such as a fingerprint or a code sent to your phone.
