May 7 Password Day

I can’t begin to count how many times I’ve had a new client come to me that has handed over their logins (user names and passwords) for their social sites and website and the passwords are super generic or even guessable based on some basic info I can either Google about the company or the owner.

90% of passwords are hackable

Tuesday, May 7 – is Password Day. lntel has provided a tool that can help you find out if your password is hackable or uncrackable. After I took the tool for a spin looks like I’m guilty of having a hackable password and would take someone roughly 2 hours to crack my password.

I think one of the biggest pieces of advice that Intel provides about picking a password that is going to take some time to adapt to, is moving away from just one password.

Take a peek at the, How Strong is Your Password? tool page – and let us know in the comments below – are you hackable or uncrackable?

    This was fun – found out most of my passwords were not so hot – but discovered a password that would take 3.6 million years to crack! How fun is that?!

    My password could be cracked in less than 5 seconds—definitely changing that! Hope I win the Ultrabook!!!

    Wow! I entered some similar pws that can be cracked in hours and some in 500,000 years! I think the trick isn’t just a mix of cases and punctuation, but length. The ones that combine all of those things and were over 12 characters did the best. Better keep em long from now on. Thanks for this.
