Most of the websites have inbuilt rules for passwords. They throw up alerts if the password we key-in does not comply to their policy.
Here is a sample of password and the subsequent alert:
welcome - Poor
Welcome - Average
Welc@me - Strong
We!c@3e - Very Strong
To take out the boredom
out of it, the alerts thrown up can be made interesting, something like this:
welcome - Are you kiddin'
Welcome - Hacker's paradise
Welc@me - Is that the best you can get
We!c@3e - Are you sure you can remember this later
(sorry if I am not being too creative in above attempt, but am sure you got the concept)
||I do wonder whether there's a dictionary out there
that lists out common words with common 'leet'
substitutions, @ for a, 3 for m (or e, depending on
personal style), and so on - someone's got to have
worked on that already.
||There are also *strong password generator* sites, but would you ever trust a password from one of those??

||They do exist, including multiple dialects of leet.
