"About 39 thousand years". I've got a password used for something else which would apparently take "About 619 septillion years"

The result I got for one of my previous passwords' is 601 billion years.

It might be purely based on the length of the password.

The above sentence got:
About 1 septemvigintillion years

I dont even know how many 0's it has. :P

Well it's not secure if you just typed a PW into that website because it is now recorded/logged together with your IP address.

How many gullible people have used this site to type in their true passwords used for banking, credit cards etc and then had them recorded by this site to be used later. Which Russian mafia group set this website up? Oh I'm sorry. Only honest people are allowed to have websites. LOL!!!!!!!

Be warned. Do not go to websites like www.howsecureisyourpassword (there are others) because they are a major security risk to you and certainly do not go typing your passwords into them.

I would think that most people here are smart enough to use an old, unused, password. You do change your passwords periodically, don't you?
