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.

@Mixture: bear in mind no system is ever 100% secure. Given enough resources, time and/or cunning a savvy hacker can get all your digital secrets. Your best bet is common sense, unrelenting vigilance and the help of stuff like the database at https://haveibeenpwned.com/ ...

@webfork, any software that can find out about how many numbers, upper case letters, lower case letters, symbols, punctuation characters, and length of a password, like Password Security Scanner, could be exploited to reveal the actual password itself. These kind of programs are very dangerous in that respect. That's why I'll never use Password Security Scanner.

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.

V1.00
