    Exclamation How easily can your password be cracked?

    Came across this via a Microsoft Press tweet.



    How Secure Is My Password?

    It says mine would "take 237 years to crack for a desktop PC to crack your password"!

    Yours ?

    Hey, if you wish you need not enter the exact password - you can always change your alphabets!

    Don't worry guys, it's safe, just load the website and turn off your internet connection. Type the password, check the strength and close it. Then turn on your internet connection.

    BTW, mine is:
    It would take
    About 12 thousand years
    for a desktop PC to crack your password
