Is my password vulnerable?
Check the strength of a password and was it exposed in any breaches.
Don't lose passwords to hackers
Weak passwords are still the primary cause of data breaches. However, you can minimize the risk of getting your accounts compromised by making a few simple changes. Create unique passwords that would have numbers, symbols, and upper and lower cases; check their strength using the NordPass password strength checker; and keep them safe in your encrypted password manager.
How weak passwords are cracked
Hackers use the so-called brute-force technique, which can take seconds to guess your password. It’s often a computer program that keeps stuffing words until it hits the jackpot. All hackers need for it to work is to upload a database with popular passwords, words from a dictionary, or passwords leaked in the past. Therefore, the more complex the password is, the less of the chance they have to break it.
