*How to prevent brute force attacks*

_Common ways to prevent against brute force cracking include_

*Adding to password* complexity:
This will make any process of guessing a password take significantly longer. Some websites, for example, will require passwords of 8-16 characters, with at least one letter and number with special characters (such as .), as well as not allowing a user to have their name, username or ID in their password.

*Login attempts:*
Adding in login attempts will lock out a user for a specified amount of time that exceeds a specified amount of attempts in inputting passwords/usernames.

These are the boxes with will show a box with warped text and asks the user what the text in the box is. This prevents bots from executing the automated scripts that appear in brute force attacks, while still being easy for a human to pass by.

*Two-factor authentication* (a type of multi-factor authentication):
This adds a layer of security to the primary form of authentication. Two-factor security requires two forms of authentication (as an example, to sign in to a new Apple device, users need to put in their Apple ID along with a six-digit code that is displayed on another one of their devices previously marked as trusted).
A good way to secure against brute force attacks is to use all or a combination of the above strategies.
