Dashlane published a new safety report. Eastern Europe uses the most secure passwords

Dashlane is known as a company founded in 2009 and released its first password manager software in 2012; it recently published a global password security report. The password security was calculated based on Password Health Score - an algorithm that considers whether a password was compromised, reused (or similar), or weak. The scale ranges from 0 to 100, with an ideal password score above 90.

This year all the password rankings in the world were between 77 and 69 (within the “Needs Improvement” range. The company didn’t provide a detailed breakdown by country; however still published results in 14 regions of the world:

Probably, Northern America received the lowest rating, due to the number of the compromised passwords. According to the company’s information, their number is around 20% for this region. Also, around 51% of the passwords in the world are reused.
