Yes! It is a common truth that choosing passwords depend on few words like dictionary words, numbers or letter we are familiar with. For instance, nkechilove, your mobile phone passcode or someone’s mobile phone number. During registration on some websites like Yahoo, Facebook, you might be prompted to choose password that has strong strength before you can proceed. So password is no more like something you can combine with your name and birth date as long as retaining privacy and security are concerned unlike our earlier practices.
You can click on any of the listed links to estimate the strength and how long it would take hackers to crack your password. From this, you can adjust the strength of your password.
From the image above, i entered “cynthia91” as the password but it returned that it could take one week for a brute-force computer to crack my password “cynthia91”. Try entering something alpha-numeric , Uppercase and Lowercase and guess the magnificent result.
