The Internet is a major part of our lives therefore creating and managing secure passwords for Internet applications is very important. There are some tools that students can use to check and improve the secure of the passwords:
- Password checker (https://www.experte.com/password-check) provides how much time a modern computer would need to crack a given password. After checking the given password, this tool also provides some suggestions for improving the password.
- A passphrase can be used for designing a strong password that is easy to remember. Students can start with long and simple sentences. Then the first letter of each word is taken to form passwords. To make strong passwords, letters can be changed to numbers or symbols (https://usingtechnologybetter.com/blog/two-classroom-activities-for-teaching-students-about-password-security/)
