AI will easily crack your password! How to make password protection from hacking? Home Security Heroes posted a study showing the effectiveness of a new neural network in cracking passwords. The company used an AI password cracker to test 15,600,000 common passwords to see how long it would take AI to crack your password in 2023.
Do you have a strong AI password?
If your passwords are less than 12 characters, we recommend changing them to more complex ones. The company used an artificial intelligence password cracker called PassGAN. They did this in order to review a list of 15,680,000 passwords. Here’s what they found:
Passwords consisting of 4 and 5 characters AI can be cracked instantly. Passwords consisting of 18 characters and containing Numbers, Upper & Lowercase Letters, Symbols are almost impossible for AI to crack. The optimal number of characters in a password is 12 – 14.
It is best to use passwords in which:
- More than 12 characters
- Uppercase and lowercase letters
- Numbers and special characters
Examples of complex passwords for password protection:
- 12 characters – dQTsv8-powtn
- 13 characters – 2kvx4yYEx2.vm
- 14 characters – sjmqZiCDW8P.hw
This AI can easily crack any password that is less than 10 characters, even if it contains numbers, symbols, and mixed case letters.
And if your password has less than 11 characters, then the neural network will need less than 5 years for a password of any complexity. For better password protection, use a password with 12 or more characters. The password must contain at least two letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers and symbols. Avoid obvious password patterns, even if they have all the required character lengths and types.
