Passwords are an important secret code in the online world. Passwords are used to confirm the identity of a user and secure the data which are stored and shared digitally. We have seen many data breaches in the past years and especially in 2019 we had more news related to data breaches which contain the username and passwords of the users from various online platforms.

To overcome this, many tech companies, cybersecurity persons were always guesting the online users to make their passwords more complex with the combination of letters, digits, or other symbols. Nowadays, there many online tools are also available to generate complex passwords with multiple combinations. But still, most of the users were using the easy to guess passwords for their online accounts.
