Explain brute force attack and the ways to prevent it

A brute force attack is a hack in which the attacker uses trial and error to guess the target password. It’s usually done with the aid of automatic software that logs you in using your credentials.

Here are some strategies for avoiding a brute-force attack:

  • Create a long password.
  • Create a password with a high level of difficulty.
  • Set a limit for failed login attempts.
