How long will it take to crack your password?

Mickey found a great site that gives the approximate time it will take to break your password.  The site, howsecureismypassword.net gives the  approximate time and a background color that indicates how secure your password is.  There are other things to worry about.  One of the things people don’t realize is that the code in your website may reveal even the most complex passwords.  It is up to the webmaster of your site to keep you secure.

    I instruct people to never use a word , to use a sentence. If you say a complex sentence they think (COMPLEX) I’ll never remember that. Well the truth is “a sentence is easier” than a word to remember.
