    What you guys think about using actual Hash as password? Hash is usually long and strong, but how would that work against brute force and other attacks for example? I mean who would guess you have 4e70616a95a161a8c27ed77941576167122b5d35 for password :D

    Lets say you wanted your password to be the hash of "Title". The md5 hash of it would be b78a3223503896721cca1303f776159b
    Now, you just need to remember your password is the hash of Title so you go and convert it to md5 hash and enter it. Easy as that :)

    I'm new here so I'd like to know is having a 2-step-verification (Gmail - Phone) still vulnerable to brute-force attacks as they can't access your acc without the confirmation that comes to your phone.

    Or there is some kind of algorithm that can even guess the code?
