Hello Jorge,

We don’t focus on length, but on complexity. That said – at least 10 characters, digits and symbols.

The second question can’t be answered in a precise way. AxCrypt uses a dynamic number of iterations to strengthen the effective password length with 12-14 bits (very approximately and it depends on the encrypting computer). The speed of the “super computer” is affected by the amount of money spent on it.

The better questions are:

1) What is the effective length of your password? Our password manager generates strong passwords at around 90 bits.

2) How many bits effective key length / second do you think the presumed attacker has a budget for?
