    It would take three days for a PC to crack my password.

    If I capitalize random letters in my password, it would take 252 days.

    I really don't think this website is accurate though. I just put in my password with a capital in it, and it jumped up about 40 million years. [​IMG]

    If you put in numbers, the password will be cracked much more easily.

    Because there are only 10 numbers (0->9), whereas there are 26 letters and loads more special symbols.

    My current password would take three days to be cracked. My old one would take 42 years though [​IMG]
    I changed it because it was bit too long and not all sites would accept it.

    My password consists of around 9 numbers, a word, and a period.

    Your password is one of the 500 most common passwords. It would be cracked almost instantly.

    Two thousand years for me. 9 letters, one capital, and a number. I find it strange that adding the number '1' to the end of the password adds 1,992 years.

    Apparently 3 days, and one of the 500 most common passwords.
    Interesting because in 10 years or so of using the internet, i've never been password jacked.
