Happy to see it would currently take 193 trillion years to crack the unique passwords I generate to login in various places.

Not sure how quickly quantum computing will change all this, though? 🤔

@dajbelshaw maybe only 192.999... tn years now we know the format you use!

@dajbelshaw The colouring is weird in that chart. e.g. 12+ upper/lower case letters mixed characters would take 600+ years, and is coloured yellow, while 10 characters of numbers or upper/lower case letters would take only 106 years and is coloured green.

@hubert Oh yeah! I suppose they're trying to make the point that more complexity is better when it comes to unique passwords
