Password Fail For Chrome Reports Websites With Bad Password Policies


Webmasters who create a community on the web need to define password policies that include password limitations and recovery options. They also need to ensure that the passwords and user data in general is protected on the service's servers to avoid disastrous hacker attacks where hackers can gather valuable unprotected data from the service.
The Password Fail extension for Google Chrome tries to aid the user in evaluating a web service. It displays icons in the Chrome statusbar if a website is loaded that is using bad password policies, specifically saving passwords as plain text.
