re: Lockdown Programming Challenges: 1. Password Strength Indicator VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Here is my proposal.

In my opinion, the strength would have been calculated that way:

  • extremely weak: Characters
  • very weak: Characters & digits
  • weak: Characters & digits & upper/lowercase
  • medium: Character & digits & upper/lowercase & special characters
  • strong: Characters & digits & upper/lowercase & special characters & more than 8 characters
  • very strong: Character & digits & upper/lowercase & special characters & more than 10 character
 
 

I think it is also important to count the number of bits in the text string, because passwords automatically generated by tools with bit length parameter can have only numbers and letters but are still considered super safe

 

Feel free to add that as a requirement.
