How Safe Is Your Password?

Posted By on December 6, 2021

The single most important thing you can do is build a safe password.

Password, 123456, qwerty… While passwords which appear on the list of the most common passwords should definitely be retired from use, as Statista’s Katharina Buchholz details below that even a more unique password can be easy to crack if a computer program is tasked with systematically breaking it.

As seen in data by website Security.orgadding even one upper case letter to a password can already dramatically alter its potential. In the case of an eight-character password, it can now be broken in 22 minutes instead of instantaneously in one second – an increase of more than 1000 percent.
