Various mechanisms exist to secure users' passwords, yet users continue to struggle with the complexity of multiple password management. The authors explore the effectiveness of a feedback loop to improve users' password management. They introduce YourPassword, a web-based application that uses feedback to inform users about the security of their password behavior. YourPassword has two main components: a password behavior checker that converts password strengths into numerical scores and a dashboard interface that visualizes users' overall password behavior and provides visual feedback in real time.
