This site will tell just how much it would take a desktop PC to crack your password.

It would take a desktop PC about 10 days to crack your password
That was my result aswell. Most passwords that people use that aren't too short or obvious are either all numbers or all letters for easy remembering. But, if you want to take it a little too far, you could make a password that consists of lower case and upper case letters, numbers and symbols. This would ensure better protection, but I don't see how this could be useful to anybody since it's hard to remember.

Haha, I remember my dad putting &quotassword" as his password. I found it out so easily, until he changed it...

My password is always based on anime. Like for example, "Nakatsukasa" but sometimes they say they arent "appropriate" but I don't see why they even need to be appropriate as long as nobody knows.

Anyways, back to topic, I was flipping my table when they were like "No symbols, must contain less than 12 characters, must include numbers" And I was flipping my head because now I type half of an anime title and some crappy numbers.

And I still cannot believe there are rules for passwords even though it's supposed to be what your genius mind thinks of. They should really say stuff like "Don't put password as a password" or "Be more creative and put down something only you would put(that is not password)"

I also remember one of my old password as pass21 XD.(now for some off-topicness)

Basically ,putting down &quotassword" or any dead givaway would be like typing &quotleasecrackthispasswrodwhichissoobvious"

Haha, yea that's true, but when you're young (7 years old for example) it's hard to be creative and you can't help, but make simple passwords. I remember when I was about 7-10 all my words were password or 12345 or drowssap (backwards of password). I was really quite dumb back then

I suppose I'm gaining some intelligence because now instead of that password site saying "your password will be cracked instantly" it now says it'll take 11 minutes for one password of mine (woot!!!), 15 hours for another and a million years for another. Before you think I have a good password it really isn't. The million year password is for my PS3 where I have "remember password" on so I don't even need to remember it Thus I had to click recover password to put it into that "how secure is my password site".

:P

123456 is the world's most common password, right?

When I was 7-10 I used passwords of funny comedy shows or cartoons, even the names of the characters or hockey players names that I liked. Also the teams of certain sports. But not all kids think of that. Seeing

a lot of passwords seem to be based on dates. Your birth date, your wedding date, etc.

As per the Password Security checking website listed on page 4:
The first password I ever made would take 6 Billion years to hack. (No bull.)
The most recent password I made would take 12 Trillion years. (Still no bull. Apparently I'm that good.)
Dad's password: 19 seconds. And he still won't change it. -_-

You actually used it or you were just testing to see how far the site would go?
If you used it; must be fairly complicated to remember.

Actually used. And it's pretty darn simple to remember too. While I'm not going to give out my secrets, I will say that two of the included elements are personal relevance that would be meaningless to anyone else and stuff that no one would really think of. So, yeah.
