I Know Your Password

Actually I don't, but are you making it really easy for someone to crack your password?

There's a really useful tool at https://howsecureismypassword.net/ where you can check how long it would take a computer to crack your password. It's well worth having a play with to see how different combinations affect the time it takes to crack it.

One of the best ways to create a password is to use three unrelated words, such as BrownFishComputer, which would apparently take one hundred billion years for a computer to crack! So pretty secure then!

And adding numbers and symbols can make your password even more secure.

Just adding the number 1 to the end of BrownFishComputer1 gives a score of one hundred trillion years.

Got to be worth 5 minutes of your time?
