    19 years to crack a 10 character password!?
     
  3. Mine is good then I guess;)
     
  4. 4 character types for me, oh yeah. *smug*

  5. 'the latest version of Unicode consists of a repertoire of more than 109,000 characters'

    So that's something like 109.000^10 permutations. Which is... a lot :D


    EDIT: no wonder 7 isn't popular, sites require 4, or 6 or 8 character passwords.
     
  6. It doesn't help when you register at a site which then sends you a confirmation email saying "Your password is: aBc123?"
