Password Strength Meter – Javascript


This past week I’ve been working on a javascript script that should be able to identify the most common bad habits of password typing, and I did it because most of the password strength scripts did not fit my expectations.

When developing a form to setup the user’s password it’s always a big spend of effort worrying about how I should warn the user about the weakness points of it’s password.

So I made a research and among many password strength sites I have found the which have a great set of items checked on the algoritm. Unfortunately the website does not provide a tool to add it in our web projects, so I decided to to make a script based on it.

The idea was to make a resource which can be easily add to web projects, so I’de choose Javascript and JQuery as the base of the project.

The finished script provides more than 15 verification items on password safety and can be fount at my github account free of charge.
