Password Guessing, (PGing) also known in cryptography as Password Cracking,(PCrak) is an action in which a user tries to use different password combinations to get into another user's account. This has a questionable effect, as most methods require that the victim is using a weak or common password such as abc123, Password, the user's name, or qwerty, or a password named after something they like that is told on their profiles.

PGing has been a common practice in 2017, where players snipe accounts just for namesnipes or to act that you are older on ROBLOX. When they added the forum age limit on May 1, 2017, many people PGed accounts just to forum.

Please note that bruteforce programs can now guess more complex passwords, though Roblox added a Captcha pro which makes it harder for users to bruteforce. However it's still strongly advised that you use capital letters and symbols in your password.

Making it Secured

A password shouldmbers (i.e. pizza123, 1337DS, etc.) Try to have your password be something someone wouldn't expect to type, as password guessers commonl try aclwords/things and a simple number combo as listed above. Remember, owever, try to make it easy to remember.

Consequences

Within the past year or two, ROBLOX have been cracking down on accounts that appear to be stolen. For example, if an account logs on for the first time in 10 years and changes the password or email, ROBLOX will lock the user out of the account and revert the email address. l owner contacts TWTPLAYER

Risk

The risk of being attacked by password guessers varies on ROBLOX depending on the value of your account. Famous ROBLOXians have a higher risk of constant password cracking, and as such require strong passwords. However, it is recommended to use strong passwords for all your accounts.
