How secure is your password?
by Khidr Suleman
How to create a safe and easy to remember password? It’s World Password Day, so it’s the perfect time to see how secure your password is. Remember, just because a password is hard for you to remember, doesn’t mean that a computer won’t crack it within minutes or hours. If you take away one thing from this article, it should be this: A long, easy to remember password is better than a short, complex password.
Let's illustrate this with a couple of examples. The first from XKCD shows the complicated password "TrØub4dor&3" might appear secure, but it will take 3 days to crack at an estimated rate of 1,000 guesses per second.
Meanwhile, a password made up of four random but easily memorable words “correct horse battery staple” would take 550 years to crack at a rate of 1,000 guesses per second. The more characters a password has, the longer it takes to crack.
