Stashword Tips – Lesson 3 – Size Matters

This is your third lesson. Use long passwords. Long passwords are exponentially better than short passwords. Short passwords are bad, irrespective of how many special characters and numbers you use.

Consider the following two passwords. The first one appears strong but is actually a really weak password. Whereas the second one is both easier to remember and a better password.

  • 1. Ab$1#@!2 (✗ Bad – can be cracked under a second by brute force)
  • 2. Sunshine-happy (✓ Good – it will take centuries to crack using brute force)
