    Maybe these strength meters are good but you should never use a password you type into them. Probably every password typed into these are copied to the NSA. Even if you mix it up a bit, they have the pattern you used.

    Almost every one of these uses javascript to determine the pass strength locally in the browser.

    Anyone forgot GRC?

    I normally use this for my generator:
