It’s long been thought that the more complicated a password, the harder it is to crack. Once upon a time, this was true — but not any longer. As decryption and other hacker techniques become more advanced, it’s also becoming easier to guess shorter passwords. By adding additional characters, you’re adding millions of additional possibilities for hackers to have to sort through. Do yourself a favor and add an extra phrase to the end of your passwords.
