dc.description.abstractIn most cases, a password is what prevents a criminal from gaining unauthorized access to protected information. Online services that handle sensitive information require users to create passwords by following their criteria for selecting a strong password. The criterion can include meeting a certain length of characters that consist of uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters. Meeting the criterion assists in making passwords harder but not impossible to be discovered by criminals.<br>The results of this project intend to support the idea of how creating strong user password are essential for preventing unauthorized access to sensitive information and guide future studies in methods of increasing technical security: <li><ul>Average users and corporations are the intended stakeholders that can benefit from this project</ul> <ul>Average users can become more aware of how managing their passwords for accounts can impact the likelihood of criminals gaining access to sensitive information.</ul> <ul>Corporations in establishing proper password guidelines for corporate accounts.</ul></li>
