How Secure Is My Password? jQuery Plugin

Now you can use the howsecureismypassword.net password strength meter on your own sites.

About

Rather then just saying a password is "weak" or "strong", How Secure is My Password? lets your users know how long it would take someone to crack their password. It also checks against the top 10,000 most common passwords as well as a number of other checks (such as repeated strings, telephone numbers, and words followed by numbers).

Other Versions

This is the jQuery version of the plugin. Other versions are also available:

Setup

Installation

bower install hsimp-jquery

CSS

Copy the build/hsimp.jquery.css file to your css directory and include it in your document <head>:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="/css/hsimp.css">

JavaScript

Copy the build/hsimp.jquery.min.js file to your js directory and include it at the bottom of the document <body>:

<script src="/js/hsimp.min.js"></script>
<!-- Other scripts go here -->

Usage

Basic Usage

$("[type=password]").hsimp();

With Configuration

$(".password-input").hsimp({
    calculationsPerSecond: 10e9, // 10 billion
    // see below for full set of options...
});

Configuration

Currently there are three supported options:

  • calculationsPerSecond: the assumed number of calculations per second a cracker could make (default: 10e9 - 10 billion)
  • good: the minimum time (in seconds) that a "good" (green) password would take to crack (default: 31557600e6 - 1 million years)
  • ok: the minimum time (in seconds) that an "ok" (orange) password would take to crack (default: 31557600 - 1 year)
