What’s a brute-force attack?
A cyberattack may not be as violent as a boxing match. Nevertheless, it can be very aggressive. In the case of a brute-force attack, the cyber attacker tries to penetrate the platform by submitting automatically user names and passwords.
That’s why it’s really important to have a strong password! On average, a password composed of 7 characters is cracked in 9 minutes, with 15 million typing attempts per second… A password composed of 13 characters would be way longer to crack: over 350000 years.
If you’re still not convinced of the necessity of using a strong password, read this article 😉
