Do you change your passwords from time to time? It is recommended to always use a strong password and change it from time to time. If you are a Mozilla Firefox user, you can download this add-on called Password Age Visualizer.
Password Age Visualizer is a free add-on for Firefox that allows you to quickly see how long you have used your current passwords and that need to be changed. This tool allows you to graphically view your password information, allowing you to easily identify passwords that need to be changed.
To access the add-on, simply click on the red padlock in the Firefox application bar after installing the add-on. It displays your passwords up to 200 days back and displays graphics in different colors, depending on the age of the passwords.
Add-on simply loads passwords stored in Firefox only. Clicking on the red padlock quickly loads a beautiful page with decent graphics and shows you your graphic password and with the graphic it also shows you how many days back your password has been changed. If you hover your mouse over the bar graph, the URL of the website for which the password was registered is displayed. If you click on the bar, the password is displayed in plain text.
The age of the password is highlighted in color in the timeline – from more than 50 days to more than 250 days.
As already mentioned, the bar is coloured differently according to the age of the password. The bars turn red when your password is 200 days or longer and indicates that your password needs to be changed.
The only thing I don’t like is that this tool is not password protected – I mean, anyone accessing your Windows PC can open this add-on and click on the password age line to display the password as plain text – but then we all know that Firefox stores passwords as plain text which is easy for everyone to see.
This addition is good for those who have forgotten to change their passwords frequently and want to be reminded to change them. People who want to know when they last changed their password may also find this tool useful.
