What are Brute Force Attacks?

Brute Force is the act of simply guessing a password using information that you already know about the user. This includes information like birthdays, phone numbers, pet’s name, and the names of your loved ones. Although it might seem far fetched, hackers often figure out their victim’s password simply by guessing it.

This method is just a matter of trial and error. A hacker will only need a few minutes to find your social media presence and look at your Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram account to find relevant information about you that might crack your password.
