Ok, possibly, it’s the project I worked on for a couple of years (fraud detection in financial sector) makes me to spot such “awesome” ideas. This morning I heard on radio an ad about a site with service, which tells you how strong your password is.
I should also start such site for two reasons:
- User goes to the site and his IP address becomes known. He tests his password and combination of IP address and password becomes known. The chance the user uses this password on a few sites is high. Half of the job to access his data is done
- Just collecting passwords and selling their hit-parade statistics can be beneficial
Do you really want another site to tell you how strong your password is?
