    It would take a desktop PC about 72 quadrillion years to crack your password.

    Apparently, icaughtyouadeliciousbass is a good one.

    I like the warning... .

    "This site could be stealing your password... it's not, but it easily could be.
    Be careful where you type your password."

    Which is exactly what I thought when I saw the topic. "Nice, a password collection site."

    Still don't trust it.

    That's exactly what I would say, if I was stealing passwords.

    It only takes about 0.01 seconds to crack it once you've entered the password into an unknown website.

    Passwords are a pain, but you should have several passwords, and different security levels depending on what you're doing on the web. NEVER PUT A SECURE PASSWORD INTO A WEBSITE THAT WAS SUGGESTED TO YOU THROUGH SPAM. If you get a message delivered to you via e-mail by your bank, carefully review the link, or better, go to your bank via your "normal" method rather than following the link in the E-Mail.

    I didn't use my exact password--I just used the same pattern of lower case, upper case, numbers and symbols.

    I wouldn't be entering the patterns and symbols I use either. Even if they don't have you exact password giving them the patterns to use narrows it down significantly to the point that its feasible to break it in a reasonable time.

    In a previous job, I was required to use a minimum 16 character password containing a small letter, capital letter, number, special character with no sequential keys on the keyboard and it had to be changed every 30 days. The last sentence in the directive said "And it should be easy to remember." Right. A friend came up with an Excel spreadsheet that randomly generated characters and assigned 4 characters to a letter or number on the keyboard. Pressing F9 would generate a new table. So, you had to just remember a 4 letter word or number sequence and pull out spreadsheet and enter those characters and press F9 every 30 days to get the next table.
    Flying a jet is no different than riding a bicycle. It's just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes.

    I worked at a place that had that security for their phone answering system... it sucked to have always change the password for something so rarely used.

    If you are insecure, why does your password have to be secure anyway?

    PS Since they discovered I am not rich I can't get a date with their Princess.

    When is technology going to solve the problem with passwords? I have a spreadsheet with 247 rows of websites with IDs and passwords, and that's just the ones I care about that I don't just use the same id and password.

    I like the idea of trying out passwords on a strange website to see if they're secure or not . . . .
