Telepathwords can tell how flimsy your passcodes are

27 sec read

A chain is only as strong as its weakest link, and when it comes to computer security, a weak password is more often than not the main passage of entry for those with malicious intention. Microsoft developers might be on to something here, calling the experimental project Telepathwords, which will be able to detect just how risky your passcodes are after running a prediction of your password setting habits.

Microsoft Research has come up with a new tool which detects how risky your passwords are, by guessing your password setting habits. The tool ‘reads your mind’ and works on an arsenal of data of common passwords used by you in the past. The tool was tested by hundreds of Microsoft employees before releasing it for public use.
