What the password-guessing program does is take your personal information, like birthdays, phone numbers, street address, girlfriends and combines it into various strong passwords that you might have used.

For example, if you are Joe Blow of 486 Main Street, Anytown, Illinois 60823, and you girlfriend is Doris and you dog is Spike, it will try stuff like

doris60823spike
spike486doris
illiniDoris60823spike

...and so on. It can do thousands of combinations a second. They get hits about 25-30% of the time.

I use passages from The Declaration of Independence or The Constitution. Nobody working for the fed has a clue where to look.

I’m going to use those three passwords next time some stoopid site wants one:)

One of my recent (and now unused) passwords was FUBO01202017

It’s be a shame if that went totally wasted on some Democrat at the NSA.
