Athennian recognizes the importance of having a secure and user-friendly password system!

To ensure the strength and security of email / password logins, we utilize an advanced tool called zxcvbn, which was developed by Dropbox and is recommended by security experts. 

This tool goes beyond traditional password strength meters by providing a more realistic assessment of password security.  zxcvbn evaluates passwords not just on complexity, but also on how easily they could be guessed or cracked, taking into account common patterns and dictionary words.

This approach helps in guiding users to create passwords that are both memorable and secure against potential threats.

What sets zxcvbn apart, is its ability to analyze passwords using dictionary and frequency analyses, among other methods, leading to a more accurate estimation of their strength.
