Hi there oskarus, welcome to GTG forums.

Trust me you safe, it should take a couple of months. If you using 8 characters with numbers, upper and lower case letters. Try using some special characters like "@$%&^*(" that should make it even more secure.

Cool :tazz:

NOTE: Nothing is impossible

Most brute-force password hacking relies on so-called "dictionary attacks", that utilize the fact that most passwords are roughly based on real words that can be found in the dictionary. This greatly reduces the number of passwords the program needs to try. If you really do use other symbols @ $ ! etc, that cannot be found in a dictionary, and you have an eight letter password, the program would need to try 62^8 possible passwords.... do the math yourself; it would take a while. :tazz:
