You can check here how secure your chosen password is. After entering it in the box "Password" the tool shows at once a detailed analysis of your password along with tips to improve its security.
Please keep in mind that the tool is no guarantee for a secure password. It does, for example, not check whether your password includes words that occur in dictionaries. Such checks are possible e.g. with the offline version CrypTool 1 (CT1) or with the Password Meter in CTO.
Your password is evaluated only locally within your browser. It will not be sent back to the CTO server.
