    Default How secure is YOUR Password?

    Not sure if this has been posted before, just input your password and see how fast it can be hacked

    Code:
    blog.kaspersky.com/password-check/
    Mine was 6 seconds so i need to change it, obviously if you're paranoid this is not for you

    Thanks to ilscuro

    Funny how I had a combination that would take centuries and I added a character to the end and then it dropped to 3 year

    Quite happy with mine. 417 Centuries plus each site I use is unique to each site but easy to remember. Obviously didn't use my actual password but one very similar.

    I think I'll be making a change as well!

    After trying out a few different things it is interesting to see what apparently makes up a good password. But more importantly what doesn't!

    Was the original password a regular word missing a letter?

    How did you guess my password?

    I have a gift that if you tell me your passwords I can find out very quickly if I can get your personal information.

    Weird but the other way around. I found adding a number 1 at the end changed it from 10 months to 8 years.

    Wonder how it is calculated..
