Third of US banks OK with passwords even social networks reject


Re: Hmm.

Requiring at least one digit does not weaken a password. It does strengthen it as long as you can put the digit anywhere.

If you have an 8 character password and can only use lowercase letters there are 209 billion possibilities ( 26^8, or 26*26*26*26*26*26*26*26 )

Using upper or lowercase increases that to 53 trillion possibilities (52^8)

Adding 10 possible digits brings it to 218 trillion possibilities. (62^8)

The possibilities increase exponentially as long as the digit can be anywhere and you can add as many as you want.

And we all know... their greed transcends all governments.
