Password Strength Meter & Visibility Toggle Plugin - jQuery strength-meter

A powerful, customizable, and multilingual password strength meter/visibility toggle jQuery plugin created to improve the security of websites and applications. Released under the BSD 3-Clause License. 

This plugin gives your users real-time feedback (password score bar) on the strength of their password as they type it in a password field. This can help users choose stronger passwords that are less susceptible to hacking attempts.

In addition, this plugin also comes with a visibility toggle that allows users to show or hide their password strings, which is a useful feature for users who may be concerned about privacy and security, or who simply want to double-check that they've entered their password correctly.
