Password Is the key to protect secrets
Almost all websites where we share information have authentication feature and we have to provide the credentials to access our profile. It’s necessary to have a Strong Password to protect your information. Usually, we use a password which is easy to remember but it’s wrong because maybe that password is also easy to hack.
Now I am going to tell you about a really great tool which helps to let you know that the password you are using is already been hacked before so you can change your password.
PassProtect Alerts you when you use a Hacked Password
There is a really great open source Tool/Chrome Extention named PassProtect which alerts you when you use a password which is hacked before. PassProtect will help us avoid simple and easy-to-discover passwords through brute force or dictionary attacks.
