Nice. It would be a good idea to post this on !security@lemmy.ml too.

That’s bad advice!

These kinds of passwords are not that strong.

Also, websites don’t implement entropy based password requirements because they can’t be described efficiently to the user. Imagine not being able to set a password for a website without understanding why. That would lead to a lot of potential users lost.

This one gives you some better insight at what could be done to prevent users from using weak passwords. It’s still isn’t perfect: the solution proposed can still lead to frustration from the user and doesn’t help with password reuse (which is the real main issue with passwords)

Very interesting. I have never heard of this, but it definitely sounds better than what I usually have as passwords. I will have to take a closer look on this matter later, when I have some spare time. Thanks for posting this article.
