Password Strength

Post by Extensions Robot » Wed Dec 10, 2014 7:23 am

Extension name: Password Strength
Author: VSE
Extension description: This extension will show users how strong (or weak) their password is as they type it into the password field when creating or updating their account.

Password Strength Tests:
Password Strength now offers two types of strength checking models to choose from:
  • Complexity:
    A simple test to check for complexity in a password by looking for a mix of characters, case, symbols, numbers and length. This is useful for encouraging hard to remember complex passwords.
  • zxcvbn algorithm :
    As used by DropBox, an algorithm that calculates the guess-ability of a password by comparing it to a large dictionary of common English words as well as looking for recognizable word patterns. This is a more robust strength checker that allows for user-friendly passwords that are easy to remember but still hard to guess. A Very Strong result represents a password that could take a computer years to centuries to guess.
Features:
  • Password field changes colors from red (weak) to green (strong) as the user types in a password.
  • Password strength is labeled as 'Very Weak', 'Weak', 'Good', 'Strong' and 'Very Strong'.
  • Active on new user registration, and in the UCP and ACP areas where you enter new passwords.
  • Set up Password Strength in the ACP User registration settings -> Password strength type.
  • Multiple languages suported.
Minimum Requirements:
  • phpBB 3.1.0 or phpBB 3.2.0
