    Brute force attack is used for guessing the password and hack your account. Attacker mostly use the login page on the web application and security questions for hacking the accounts.

    You should always set the strong password for your all accounts. Those passwords should be combination of numbers, characters, special symbols. Make sure, you will never set the password as your mobile number, birth-date. Those are easily guessed and hacked.

    Brute force (also known as brute force cracking) is a trial and error method used by application programs to decode encrypted data such as passwords or Data Encryption Standard (DES) keys, through exhaustive effort (using brute force) rather than employing intellectual strategies.

    A brute force attack is a trial-and-error method used to obtain information such as a user password or personal identification number (PIN). In a brute force attack, automated software is used to generate a large number of consecutive guesses as to the value of the desired data. Brute force attacks may be used by criminals to crack encrypted data, or by security analysts to test an organization's network security.
