How long should a password be?


Question asked by: mrquestion

Asked on: 06 Jan 2010

Many websites have limits on how long a password should be and typically this is something in the region of 8 - 12 letters.

If there is no limit given, then in any case this is a good idea. You don't want it to be too short as it is easy to crack a password of just a few letters, however with a longer one it is a lot harder.
