How to check the strength of a password online and find out the time it takes to crack it
1. Follow the link https://password.kaspersky.com/ru/.
This is a link to a special service from the popular anti-virus software developer Kaspersky Lab. This service is able to assess the strength of a password by guessing it using the so-called “brute force” (brute force method). At the same time, the page is absolutely safe to use, since it does not collect or store passwords.
If for some reason you do not want to enter your real password, then change one or more characters in it. This will practically not affect the result of the check.
2. Enter the password you want to check in the box Check your password…
3. Get the test result.
After entering the password, the service indicates the amount of time it takes to crack it on a regular computer. Users who have had this indicator for less than a few years are advised to come up with a stronger password.
It is noteworthy that cracking the password offered by the generator built into Safari on Mac, according to the service, will take over 3200 centuries.
