Can you beat me?

I just scored 79.5% on the LastPass Security Challenge

ranking 4554th overall. It securely analyses the strength of your passwords, alerts you if you have any duplicate or weak passwords, and tells you how to make them more secure.
Give it a try and see if you can beat my score!

Re: Can you beat me?

Not very good if I'm honest.  I tried it with my Final Fantasy XIV account which has a pretty good password that only got ranked at 45% (only 1 item different than my Cisco password which scored 100%).  It also didn't take into account my One Time Password keyfob which generates a random 6 digit number every time I use it so even if you knew my user name and password you couldn't log in without the One Time Password.
Overall (with just my Cisco) I scored 80.2% putting me at 3952nd.

Re: Can you beat me?

Didn't try it but the password for my email is over 30 characters with combinations of letters and numbers.
I didn't want to try the site as you have to install some plugin.. and besides i never trust any site with my passwords other than the site they're intended for.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

@okrzynska, agree with you. Several sites I use require SecureID, photo attached (not just financial organisations).

Re: Can you beat me?

Article in today's paper about passwords, seems the more !"£$%^&*()_+}:><?@~ you have mixed in with words and numbers the more secure your password is likely to be.
Can these also be included in passwords  Grin Angry Sad Roll eyes Tongue Embarrassed Undecided : ?

Re: Can you beat me?

What you could do for a secure password is think of a word, lets say "the" and "the" will be our password, but that's not very long and easily guessable (and not forgettable!) so hash it using MD5 and it becomes 8fc42c6ddf9966db3b09e84365034357, a really long and secure password you never need remember, as long as you remember the!
