To protect your site, LexBlog requires secure passwords for all user accounts.
Our password security is measured by zxcvbn, which estimates how long it would take different computational techniques to crack a password. We require passwords of at least medium strength.
You can test passwords and see the amount of time it could take to crack them.
Choosing a secure password
- At least 12 characters
- A combination of upper and lower-case letters
- Punctuation symbols
- Passwords used for another account
- Single dictionary words
- First and surnames—especially your name
- Repeated characters
- Sequential keyboard characters, e.g., zxcvbn
- l33tspeak, e.g., l3xbl0g
Creating memorable passwords
It's helpful to choose a secure, unique password that's easy to remember. These sample passwords are easier to remember than random characters and satisfy our security requirements:
- The answer is not 42.
- What is an Ewok?

LexBlog recommends using a service like LastPass to create and store passwords.
