What is Password entropy? In one word, it is a measurement that can rate how unpredictable a password is.
Password entropy is calculated by the character set used (which can be extended by using lowercase, uppercase, numbers, and symbols) and the length. Password entropy predicts the difficulty of cracking a given one by guessing, brute force, dictionary attacks, or other common methods.
Password entropy is usually expressed in bits: the entropy of a known password is zero; Half the probability of a guess on the first attempt is 1-bit entropy. The entropy can be calculated by calculating the entropy of each character, which is the number of characters in the base of 2 multiplied by the logarithm of the number of characters in itself.
Surely you can't just consider password entropy, otherwise, it will be too long, too complex, and difficult to remember. Best practices include using things that users remember but aren't easily guessed by others. Since length is one of the most important factors affecting password entropy and overall strength, longer ones may be simpler than shorter ones, but still work.
When it comes to avoiding low password entropy, a password manager is always the best solution. For example, using Passwarden’s secure password generator feature, it is very convenient to create a complex combination, including numbers, capital letters, and symbols, and instantly save it to an encrypted data store. Of course, if you prefer to use one easy-to-guess combination for all your accounts, there’s no need for a manager; but if you do care about the safety of your web assets, we highly recommend you try Passwarden, it is by far the best password manager in the market.
