Microsoft Research's Telepathwords helps you find out how weak your passwords are by trying to guess each character of your password before you type it.

Telepathwords tries to predict the next character of your passwords by using knowledge of:

  • common passwords, such as those made public as a result of security breaches
  • common phrases, such as those that appear frequently on web pages or in common search queries
  • common password-selection behaviors, such as the use of sequences of adjacent keys
