The data shown on the dashboard is very helpful, however it is not actionable.
As such, please let users manage their passwords (filter, sort, search) based on the parameters shown on the dashboard:
- Last updated (days since)
- Password strength: very strong, strong, weak, very weak
Part of maintaining a secure set of internet passwords is being able to quickly check which passwords are very week or outdated. A user who might do this regularly could see, for example, if any of their banking account passwords were very old or very weak and proactively change them.
Just knowing the aggregate metrics (3 very weak, 10 weak, or 25 updated over 180 days ago, etc.) are not useful enough to warrant inclusion on the dashboard, as they aren't changing very frequently.
One recommendation is to provide some sort of security score based on all these indicators, and let users track their security score over time. This would quickly and easily convey urgency.
