It doesn't work with the new Firefox
I remember this add-on as really useful but unfortunately it seems like it hasn't been adjusted for the new interface changes in newer Firefox versions. I can't seem to get it started since the add-on bar has been removed from the new interface.
Works in Firefox 24. Pretty neat.
It looks awesome, but it don't even show up in Firefox 22.
Really neat. Helped prune some dead accoutns. Only handful of issues...
* Version 0.12 does NOT honour the Master Password setting.
* Use the whole screen for display.
* Allow more densely pack display so that elements are not pushed off the screen out of sight.
* Remove the dialogue (extra click) to show a password. The whole point of this is to look and see what passwords are in use, so why bother prompting. As long as you honour Master Password, make the rest easy.
* Provide something like Password Exporter to .csv ; but ability to sort by password or sort by domain (right-to-left).
* Ability to delete blue URL nodes to delete account from list.
It looks great in my browser and works perfectly, spacing things out nicely. I'm used to this type of display from the Visual Thesaurus.
I don't care about master password security since no one has access to the computer I use.
However, there are two things that would help tremendously:
1. An option to display all of the urls without having to mouse over them.
2. An option to display all of the passwords, as well.
The reason for this is that in order to truly understand what is going on, I need to see the urls & passwords displayed so that I can see the relationships of the passwords & urls and determine how closely I am actually following my own password regime:
I use a set of unique, reasonably complex, & not guessable by someone who knows me that I reuse based on category: 1 password or variation thereof for blogs, message boards, etc. for which I am strictly a user - This review website.
Logins for websites over which I have management control. (more unique & less reuse)
Logins for websites involving money. (even more unique & even less or no reuse)
This works perfectly also with FF11, at least for me.
I am now tryin gto find omething similar for Chrome, ha anyone seen anything like it?
harrumphed my inner paranoiac, I realized after playing with it that I just potentially gave every single one of my Internet passwords to Paul Sawaya.
Put your paranoia to rest, and check out the source yourself: https://github.com/mozilla/watchdog-visualize-passwords
Excellent point, though, security software that isn't open source isn't worth taking seriously.
Also consider that any add-on you've installed has access to the same data, and could potentially harvest your passwords just as easily, while claiming to do something else.
Good Tool to visualize but the biggest pain is it lacks panning or the graph should be sizable, I can only view 1/4 of the page showing passwords
Good idea, but not usable to me.
Firefox 10.0.2 (Build 20120216081400 on Ubuntu Linux x86_64)
I love this app! It's nice being able to see a visualization of my password usage.
Also, this app does not bypass the mozilla master password security system and I haven't experienced any of the crashes the other reviewers have complained about. It's probably an issue with their system not the app.
In short, wonderful app: simple, consice and extremely useful.
This is a good idea, however it's not usable if one has hundreds if not thousands stored login information/passwords.
All I see is a orange square with some tiny white dots and green and blue odd shaped "dots". These colored dots move at about once in 5-10 seconds. While the addon is active the browser is unusable. Perhaps async execution is in order here...
@Laurentj: It does require master password, but if you did not know that, once you entered your master password it will be remembered by Firefox until you close it, therefore anything that requires access to MP protected data will have unrestricted access. This is not addon's security issue, it's Firefox's itself! There are some extensions that would timeout MP after specified time.
This is very cool!
A great idea, and I see huge value in it!
Admitedly, it is very problematic that there is no requirement to type in the master password yet one can access all the passwords. That's definitely something to be corrected urgently.
There are a few other imperfections:
- we should be able to zoom in and out (some passwords are outside the bounds)
- some URL don't appear in the boxes
But still, it's enormously helpful to get this visual indication of which are the shared passwords.
If you have a master password, the addon doesn't ask you the master password before showing passwords ! it MUST ask you the master password, as Firefox does when you want to see a password in the password manager.
IMHO, it is a serious security issue, as anyone who have access to your browser can see all passwords without needed to give the master password
Can't see the urls as they appear off the right of the screen.
Useful, but slow if you have hundreds or thousands of passwords stored, even with minimal reuse.
I love this add-on! Great to convince others (or yourself) to be more strict about your password policy! The similarity graph is a great idea to do it :)
I'd love to be able to navigate better in my graph, though. I have 200-300 passwords, but I can only see a third of the graph, because I can neither zoom nor move the part of the graph that is currently visible. I'd love to see these features coming...
No restart required? Indeed, it Firefox crashed right after installing.
Could it be that "Password Reuse Visualizer" is not compatible with "Saved Password Editor"?
Didn't know i share one password for so many sites. Great Addon, Thanks :)
I initiated this add-on thinking that I didn't have any password issues to be concerned about (but I was curious), so to my surprise, it revealed that I had some work to do.
The value of this add-on is realized a few seconds after clicking on the little padlock icon.
I highly recommend it to anyone concerned about their own security efforts and management, to those who are overly confident about them (like I was), and especially to those that don't even bother with such things.
Thanks sincerely for developing it and for continuing to look out for us all.
