Naked Password is an open-source jQuery plugin with the tagline "Make your site sexy!" It purports to encourage users (who, presumably, the developers assume are heterosexual men, homosexual women or people with a sense of humour) to enter stronger Web site passwords by displaying cartoon images of a woman wearing progressively less clothing: "Our beautiful model Sally tastefully removes items of clothing as the password grows stronger."

The images are small cartoon-style icons; the final image shows a completely naked eight-bit women.
