AI Can Now Crack Most Passwords in Less Than a Minute!Posted: Monday June 5, 2023
A team of security experts used AI to see how long it would take to crack the most common passwords. The test used 15,680,000 common passwords… AI cracked:
51% of passwords in less than one minute
65% of passwords in an hour or less
71% in about a day
81% in a month
The study found that a 10-character password with numbers and lower-case letters would be cracked in under one hour which is 65% of all tested passwords.
Adding another layer of complexity with upper case letters or special characters boosts the cracking time to an estimated five years!
