Bruteforce Password Guesser (I'm back)
Snowytrack (192)

After arduous nights and days wondering whether I should code another program, I'm back.

Bruteforce Password Guesser!

How it works:

You input a 4-lettered password that you want the computer to guess.

Press enter, and the computer will automatically get cracking at it.

Note: This program does take a long time since it is Bruteforce lol and it does it randomly each time. The amounts of passwords guessed can reach 100 million and more!

Edit: OMG Thanks for all of the support I’ve been getting on this repl recently! 56 upvotes is insane, so thank you so much!


Also, my programs usually don't get a ton of upvotes, and I work really hard on them, so if you enjoy my program, make sure to upvote; its free, and it motivates me a ton!

Hello! as @Muffinlavania said, for loops are much more efficient than random guessing which means combinations can be repeated multiple times. This results in worse program times, so hopefully later you can add for loops and I expect reduce the time and guesses.
Here's some math!
90 characters are possible for each. Meaning the possibilities are 90^4 if you dont know exponents that is 90*90*90*90. That is a bigggg number (big! big! humongous!). However, if you use random choosing each time, it is theoretically possible to guess an infinite amount of times without ever getting it right.
So do for loops! 90^4 is big! But much smaller than infinity.
