  • Suggested by Midas

Strong Passwords Need Entropy is entropy calculator, password's strength and survivability checker and a strong password generator. The program analyzes your password and displays statistics about its length, character frequency, symbols, lowercase+uppercase letters, and digits. Based on this information, it calculates the password entropy, or the number of trials needed to find it and the time to crack the password.

Note that this analysis doesn't take into account "dictionary attacks" or use of words. For example, "ambassadorconjure" is long but not necessarily hard for a computer to guess.

System Requirements: WinAll

This is an interesting application. Is there a way to run a list of passwords and get an output file of passwords and evaluations? If not here, can anyone recommend a portable app that does this?

br3: I haven't seen one that evaluates passwords in batches. I'd reach out to the developer on that point.

Password Security Scanner audits security information about stored passwords without displaying the password itself. Includes the total number of characters: numeric, lowercase/uppercase, and repeating, as well as a rating of overall password strength. Can help determine whether the passwords used by other users are secured enough, without knowing or watching their actual passwords. Great for administrators concerned about security concerns caused by their users.

Currently scans the passwords of Internet Explorer 4.0 - 11.0, Mozilla Firefox (All Versions), Google Chrome, Chromium, Dialup/VPN passwords, MSN/Windows Messenger, Microsoft Outlook, Windows Live Mail, SeaMonkey, Opera (Version 15 or greater), Vivaldi and Yandex Web browsers.

System Requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes

How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch PasswordScan.exe.

  • Added support for Vivaldi and Yandex Web browsers.

All programs that claim to do password auditing should work this way. Admins don't need to know the actual password, just if its complex enough.

I wish this app supported threaded in-chat conversations.

Right now, it's a very basic, barebones log.

Ironically Avast doesn't allow me to download this program.
By the nature of the application it couldn't really be described as a false positive!

joby_toss on 2010-05-25 16:18

A good AV will not let you run this kind of software unless you add it to the exclusion list.

Catapult on 2010-05-25 20:28

It's not the zip thats infected. The site itself tries to deploy a trojan horse!
