Interesting, thanks for sharing. For some time I have been practicing a “passwordless”  authentication. Whenever I am logging into a certain page, I am resetting the password and putting in a random sequence of characters, numbers and special symbols. Works like a magic. The next time, I am logging into the website, I just reset the creds.

Is it only me or would it be a rather genious idea to write a simple app that would test for the strength of the users password and in the reality it would save all the passwords for the dictionary attack?
