When it comes to choosing a logical password, you always ask yourself the question of remembering it. The first idea that comes to you is to use a series of numbers or letters positioned in a precise order and easy to remember. Unfortunately we will disappoint you. The layout in a specific order will make it easier to crack your password.
Understand how to crack a password?
In addition to the various "espionage" techniques (social engineering, wiretapping, keylogger, etc.), there are two methods of breaking passwords.
- Brute force, which consists of trying all possible combinations (several billion possibilities). Of course this is done by robot software, which is unfortunately very easy to get on the web. On the other hand it is a method that can be long, especially if the hacker has standard hardware. It is usually used when the attacker does not have access to his target and is not able to have information about it. By analogy with fishing you could compare it to trawling
- The "smart" method goes to it, try to get straight to the point to save time. It is similar to underwater hunting and consists of guessing the password using a logical procedure, which in turn seeks to discover a precise order of layout, characters or numbers. It requires having as much information as possible about the person to put yourself in their place (in their head) in order to imagine how they chose their password. So you understand that if you followed a logic, which is to use combinations that make sense to you, the hacker will be able to deduce it based on the information he has collected.
