How strong are your Facebook or Gmail or Twitter accounts’ passwords?

If you have green bars which tell that your passwords are secured, this indicates that you are perfectly secured and if not then you might get in trouble, warns a new research to be published on system security.

The positives and negatives are mentioned in the research, conducted by Concordia University, which tells that the users remain unconvinced as the bar chances into green in order to have strong passwords.

"We found the outcomes to be highly inconsistent. What was strong on one site would be weak on another," said lead researcher professor Mohammad Mannan.

Most of the high traffic web service providers like Google, Dropbox, Skype, Yahoo!, and Twitter used the not-so-good passwords, sent by the researches.
