Microsoft Edge is getting a new password strength check feature to enhance the security of users' online accounts. The latest Edge Canary updates now warns users with a strength progress bar if they attempt to save a weak password and prompt them to change it.
In the age of increasing cybercrime, it is more important than ever for users to have strong and secure passwords. The Edge password strength check feature will help users create stronger passwords and avoid using the same password for multiple accounts, reducing the risk of a security breach.
Rating System for Secure Passwords
The Edge password checker evaluates the strength of a password in real-time, providing users with a rating on the password's strength and suggesting improvements if necessary. The feature uses advanced algorithms to determine the password's strength based on factors such as length, complexity, and the use of symbols and numbers.
The password strength checks feature in Microsoft Edge will be simple to use, with a clear and concise rating system, allowing users to determine their password's strength quickly.
The new and improved password manager, featuring a password strength progress bar, is being gradually released to a select group of Edge Insiders in the Canary Channel. As is typical with early releases, availability may be delayed as Microsoft selects users randomly to test the feature in the Canary Channel.
Tip of the day: After years of hefting a laptop around, you inevitably build up a menagerie of Wi-Fi networks. For the most part, they'll sit on your PC, hardly used, but at times a change in configuration can make it difficult to connect to a network your computer already remembers. At this point, it can be beneficial to make Windows forget a Wi-Fi network and delete its network profile.
