Password quiz

You need passwords everywhere you go on the internet – for your email provider, on Instagram or Facebook, for online shops and many other places. But choosing a secure password can be pretty difficult. And remembering it is even harder.

These days, powerful computers can try millions of passwords per second. They can crack simple passwords by trial and error in almost no time at all.

Password quiz

You need passwords everywhere you go on the internet – for your email provider, on Instagram or Facebook, for online shops and many other places. But choosing a secure password can be pretty difficult. And remembering it is even harder.

These days, powerful computers can try millions of passwords per second. They can crack simple passwords by trial and error in almost no time at all.

What kind of password is particularly difficult for computers to crack?

A short password with upper and lower case letters, numbers and special characters.
A password that is as long as possible.
A long sequence of numbers such as “1234567890”.
A password consisting of your address, name and birthday.

Answer:

The best way to prevent computers from guessing your password is to use the longest possible password. Special characters and numbers do help but if the passwords are too short they can still be guessed quickly.

Passwords made up of numbers only, especially in a sequence, are very popular because they are easy to remember. But they are also super easy to guess – avoid them!

So, the longer the password, the more secure it is. You can try using a ‘passphrase’ as a password:

MyLittleBrotherPrefersToWearGreenTrousers (41 characters). A password should contain at least 12 characters.

Here you can see that one extra character can really impact password security.

The fact that your passwords can be guessed isn’t the only risk. What’s even riskier is that providers of websites where you use your password can be regularly hacked, causing your password to fall into the wrong hands.

How many different passwords should you use?

A single long password as this cannot be guessed.

A separate password for every app/website.

Around three to four, depending on the importance of the website.

Answer:
You should actually use a separate password for every website and app. Hackers regularly steal usernames, email addresses and passwords from websites. They can then try out the stolen information on other websites. If you use the same password on multiple websites, the hackers will gain access to those accounts too.

How do you remember the passwords for so many websites and apps?

By slightly changing the password for each website (e.g. MyNormalPasswordForFacebook and MyNormalPasswordForGoogle).

By using a password manager.

By writing your passwords on a piece of paper.

By storing a document with all your passwords on your computer.

Answer:
The best option is to use a password manager. This is a program that helps you use a separate password for each website and app. The password manager creates a random password for each page and saves it in encrypted form. Find out more about password managers in this article.

Many sites offer two-factor authentication. What does two-factor authentication protect you from (there may be more than one answer)?

It prevents someone who knows or has stolen my password from logging into my bank account.

It prevents someone from finding out the password to access my password manager.

It prevents someone from logging into an online shop or app in my name with my hacked or stolen password.

It prevents hackers from stealing usernames and passwords from sites in large-scale sweeps.

Answer:

Two-factor authentication prevents anyone from logging into your account, even if that person knows your password. They can only log into your account if they have both factors, meaning your password and, for example, the code from an SMS. So it’s important that you protect access to the second factor like you protect your password.
