A multitude of surveys reports that a high percentage of people tend to reuse their passwords. It has been claimed that one of the most common passwords in the world is "123456". The level of complexity of your passwords can have implications for your online life.

Cyclonis Password Manager's Password Analyzer can help you develop more complex passwords. By employing a series of complex metrics and taking into account a multitude of factors, Cyclonis Password Manager provides you Cyclonis' estimation of your Total Strength Score based on, among other factors, the graphs, charts and formulas in this page, and then displays it. This score is influenced by a number of factors including the presence of weak, old, reused, and potentially compromised passwords among the ones used in your account. Of course, no matter how carefully an estimation may be performed, and no matter how many factors may be considered in an estimation, any password – complex or otherwise – can be subjected to an attack and be compromised.
