When students are signing into an app or program for the first time it always asks to create a password. This password allows yourself to be protected and keep your information and identity safe.
Students would use a web program to find the strongest password possible to help protect themselves from getting hacked.
During this web program students learn about the mathematics behind using powerful passwords and find that probability has a large role to play when figuring out your password.
For example, a 4 digit iPhone password has 10x10x10x10 different combinations or 10,000 different passwords. While a 6 digit iPhone password has 10x10x10x10x10x10 different combinations or 1,000,000 different combinations. The difference between the two is 990,000 different passwords just by increasing the password two digits.
Students will look at other password generations from words, symbols, and digits of what creates a strong password and how to keep their information secure.
