How strong is your password?

Hmm, you want me to type my password into a random website that could log my ip?

 

I´m sorry but if your password is not good, then is going to be less safe by giving it out left or right.

Just my opinion.

Exactly my opinion too.

 

Anyway, if you want to know, my password always gets the strongest rating.

Firstly, you asked "how strong is your password". Plus there's no reason to type in a fake password.

 

Secondly, why this? Any site I register to tells me that my password is very strong. I didn't use the site you posted.

I titled the post that way.

Obviously ,you would type in a sample (not your own) password,and gauge the strength rating!

This might come as a surprise,but most "user" passwords are very weak,and can be easily hacked by thieves!

So, what is the point then, to found out a password I don't use is strong or week?

 

I don't want you burned or any other way, just think we need to stick to some integrity, but I can agree that some people have week passwords.

 

And a tip for a forum like this is not to use anything aviation or simulation related in your password, or even words or a sentence, just random letters and numbers is the best.

The implication is obvious and,as other's have said, foolish.

During a password audit, it was discovered one of the employees had the following password:

 

MickeyMinniePlutoHueyLouieDeweyDonaldGoofyParis

 

When asked why such a long password she replied:

 

"I was told it had to be at least 8 characters long and contain at least one capital!"

DO NOT USE YOUR OWN PASSWORD

 

First thing I thought was, 'Should I use someone else's password? That wouldn't be very secure'. I put it down to the blood that ought to be in my brain being in my belly dealing with a heavy lunch...

Absolutely nothing is as "strong" as a GUID:

Even just a small portion of a GUID is sufficient!

The point is... to test out a password idea that you might have to see how secure it is, then you would come up with something similar in pattern or scope to use as a real password. For example let's say I was thinking about using the following as a password. 29$foodisGood@ So I go to the website as posted by the OP, and type in 51&sNostormS# if that comes back as a "strong" password, then you're probably good to go with the first example. I'm not sure what all the confusion is about.

Ant, notice that a 16 character GUID (which includes the - character) is still substantially stronger than your 26 character pw...

 

Note that it is so strong that the time to crack has to be expressed in exponential notation!

 

1.0156513179718275e+31 centuries

 

Or, writing it out another way:

 

1.0156513179718275 x 1031

 

That is of course still quite a bit less than full entropy, but nonethess more than long enough... :p0126:
