    How long will it take for an average person (or hacker or whatever) to find out a password that is 18 digits long?

    Try-hard style I'd say ... 46*2=92*18=1656 outcomes but only cause I know your password is 18 digits.

    Edit: oops 92^18=2.2293635e+35 Think that's the right one. Let's type them all out?

    Assuming only lowercase and uppercase chars and numbers, 26*2 +10 = 62; 62 possibilities in each of the 18 'digits', 62^18. If you meant digits as in only numerical password, it'd be 10^18, I believe.

    What does that mean? Literally guessing? If it was just guessing, 1656 would be pretty small but
    ... and by digits are you meaning just numbers or is this 18 character/placements available? Most passwords are letters and numbers; some will have symbols and differentiate caps versus lowercase? May you please clarify for me :grin:

    He means any numbers/letter/capital besides spaces I guess. And the number means the number with the . 35 places to the right.

    I should have clarified what I had meant: I meant what he was meaning... I know what the e stands for lol thanks though haha. To be more precise to 92^18 it is 2.22936352980620 x 10^35 lmfao although I am sure someone else will outdo me here.

    2.22936352980620e+35
    2.2293635298061975e+35

    Lol now I am having fun looking for more precise answers lololool

    well they are all letters and numbers
    and some are uppercase and others are lowercase

    so, my guess is, 2 years?

    The answer to the question, however, is none of this. The time would depend on how much time you need to compute each of the possible passwords, but with 18 characters in length I am almost sure the time would be quite, quite large.

    You could do some very rough and optimistic calculation by taking the total number of possible passwords and assuming you will generate one of each in a clock cycle of a processor of choice. Then just multiply by how 'long' each clock cycle is and you would get something something.

      If you're doing brute force, that will take centuries but that also depends on the computing power you have. Suffice it to say, without an extremely well organized dictionary attack, with some additional information/clues, the authentication system lockout periods, it will be extremely hard to crack that password you're curious about.

      I was about to link to that site.

      Imagine that site was just storing everyones passwords.

      Did you guys just input your password into a website that has nothing to do with your password? :neutral: :neutral: :neutral:

      I mean da fa

      Just replace every letter with a corresponding letter.

      For example my password is: A87sd8G

      So I entered : D43jr3G

        Well if you used the same password for every account that would just be silly.

        If anything you could always send it along with your bank details to the people with your inheritance in nigeria and they could test it for you.
