Is This Safe?




It is actually. I'm not harvesting passwords into an evil
database. Of course that's exactly the sort of thing I would say if I
were harvesting them. And it wouldn't be hard to do it: a couple of
lines of code and I'd have all your passwords. Mwuhahahahahaa! But, to be honest, I don't know what I'd do with them. Make a cake perhaps.



The bit of code that does the calculations is done in JavaScript.
And JavaScript is a "client-side" language. That means it runs on your computer – not on ours.
No data ever travels from your computer back to the website. You can
check this by loading up the webpage and then turning off your internet
connection. You'll still be able to use the website to your heart's
content.



However, for the super-paranoid among you, you could just type in something a bit like your password rather than your actual password. In fact, that's probably a good idea anyway. Just in case I'm lying.

Since I don't even remember it, probably pretty secure.

So let me get this straight.  You want me to type my passwords into a text box on a random website?
Link Posted: 5/3/2011 4:52:00 AM EDT
According to that website, this password should hold me over for 126 years!

E-mail and Facebook - 778 Thousand Years.

16 characters.



My other password is rated 16 years.

Link Posted: 5/3/2011 5:02:08 AM EDT
About a second.

It literally said that.

Link Posted: 5/3/2011 5:02:14 AM EDT
i noticed that length is the most important factor.

As I put in an email password I use, it said 5 minutes.  I added " 4me" and it jumped to 16 years.  Then I added "andyou" and it jumped to a billion years or something like that.

After about 8 characters, it starts to exponentially get harder to crack...though this seems logical to me.  I may have to update all passwords with 10 characters or so...
Link Posted: 5/3/2011 5:03:49 AM EDT
wait, so you post a link on arfcom for people to type their arfcom account password into?

717 quattuorvigintillion years... not really sure how long that really is...
Link Posted: 5/3/2011 5:06:06 AM EDT
So I go to your website, I punch in my password and the computer tells me how secure it is.

Hmmmmmmm, something seems phishy.

ETA: I tried a generic in the same format as my typical password 301 Million Years
Link Posted: 5/3/2011 5:06:30 AM EDT
well, my original one was 8 seconds.



I just changed it to one that said 16 years.

My Arfcom password would take 4 hours



My bank stuff would take about 4 days



My shop computer would take "about a billion years"

About 24 thousand years

only an idiot would enter their actual password but you can still use the tool by creating a pattern that is similar

lets say my password is [email protected]$sW0&d you could map that to *Lg&g(9M and the score is the same 46 days... btw putting a space in either of these increases it from 46 days to 9 years... and putting " ~`" (space ~ `) increases it to 53 thousand years...

Ok, now start a thread with a poll:



How many of you typed your actual password in?
