Is your password safe?

Project description

Is your password safe? Safe will check the password strength for you.

How it works

Safe will check if the password has a simple pattern, for instance:

  1. password is in the order on your QWERT keyboards.

  2. password is simple alphabet step by step, such as: abcd, 1357

Safe will check if the password is a common used password. Many thanks to Mark Burnett for the great work on 10000 Top Passwords.

Safe will check if the password has mixed number, alphabet, marks.


Install Safe with pip:

$ pip install Safe

If pip is not available, try easy_install:

$ easy_install Safe


It’s very simple to check the strength of a password:

>>> import safe
>>> safe.check(1)
>>> safe.check('password')
>>> safe.check('')
>>> safe.check('x*V-92Ba')
>>> strength = safe.check('x*V-92Ba')
>>> bool(strength)
>>> repr(strength)
>>> str(strength)
'password is perfect'
>>> strength.valid
>>> strength.strength
>>> strength.message
'good password'
