With a premium subscription to NordPass, you will be gaining access to the Password health feature. The newly introduced feature will check your NordPass vault for any vulnerable/insecure passwords.
All of the passwords that have been branded as vulnerable will be grouped into 3 different categories: Weak, Old, and Reused. Clicking on one of the vulnerable entries you will be taken straight to the edit screen where you will be able to both, go to the website/application to change password, and update the entry inside your vault.
If you are interested in what makes a password appear in one of the categories, you can have a read of a short summary for each category here:
- Weak - the strength of the password is mostly determined by its composition: its length and characters used;
- Old - a password will be considered old if it was not changed within your NordPass vault for over 90 days;
- Reused - self-explanatory - we do not recommend using the same password more than once.
When changing your passwords in order to up your security levels you should take these questions into consideration: Is the password long enough? Are you using both, uppercase and lowercase letters? Does it consist of any digits or symbols?
Hard, isn't it? Well, all of this can be easily solved with the use of one of our tools - the Password Generator;
