This AI Tool Can Crack Passwords within Minutes

Artificial Intelligence has brought good things to people, but there are also some dangers. There’s a new AI tool called PassGan that can hack passwords. It’s different from how people used to do it manually. It looks at real passwords that have been leaked before. This makes cracking passwords faster, but it could also help bad people crack passwords too.

Tests were done to see how well PassGan works. They found that shorter and simpler passwords are easier to crack. About 81% of the passwords were cracked in a month, 71% in a day, 65% in less than an hour, and 51% in less than a minute.

It even cracked a seven-letter password with uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols in just six minutes. Even a 13-number password was cracked in three minutes.

So, passwords that are both long and complicated are safer. Experts say a password with 9 different characters would take five years to crack. This shows how important it is to use strong passwords to keep your online accounts safe.
