Recently a study was done on ‘how long does it take to crack a password’. I haven’t seen one of these in awhile and I wasn’t surprised to see the changes; still it was mind blowing.
An 8 digit password with upper and lower case letters, numbers and special characters takes 8 hours to break. One business day. In case you can’t read that small print on the left. The password we all thought was safe years ago, is now not at all.
Some of you have passwords that can be cracked INSTANTLY. Some of you use the same password on everything and it’s already been compromised 5 times in various data breaches. check to see if you are compromised
Believe me, I know you don’t want to, but it’s time to consider stronger passwords and a password keeper because life is hard.
80% of all breaches are tied back to a PASSWORD issue.65% of all users repeat passwords using them on multiple sites. This means that if one is breached, the all are.
We have a new offering for password management called Keeper. It’s going to be $48.00 annually to keep and share your passwords. It’s a pretty impressive program that will give you 10 character passwords which are super strong and unbreakable during this phase we are about to enter.
Every single person and business needs to invest in additional security now. I understand not everyone will hear that warning. I can honestly tell you, I’ve seen more loss of funds in the past two years than in the previous two years and the next two will be worse.

How strong is your password?
