Most websites ask you to have symbols, numbers and uppercases in your passwords to make them strong. According to a recent report, one major reason for breaches is weak and stolen passwords like P@55w0rd!, Admin@1213, ABC@1234, Dragon@123, Qwerty@u!Op, etc.
They pass the criteria, but, are they strong? Nope, they are among the top 10 most weak passwords to have.
Time to test the health of your passwords
The first thing before you change your weak passwords is to identify them. Put them in Enpass and use the built-in password auditor tool to find your vulnerable passwords.
