What are your thoughts on password meters?
I think they are only somewhat helpful because there is no clear indication as to how to actually strengthen the password. A novice user could maybe type in more characters in there, but it can still be considered "weak."
- Do you think it will work better if combined with "password criteria" on how to strengthen it?
- If we were to display the "password criteria", is the progress indicator still necessary at that point? Or is that just a way of visually communicating to the user the strength of their password to hopefully motivate them to create stronger ones?
