Password Strength

password_strength

To anyone who understands information theory and security and is in an infuriating argument with someone who does not (possibly involving mixed case), I sincerely apologize.

This comic is saying that the password in the top frames "Tr0ub4dor&3" is easier for password cracking software to guess than "correcthorsebatterystaple".  And this is absolutely true that people make passwords hard to remember because that means that they are "safer".

The important thing to take away from this comic is that longer passwords are better because each additional character adds much more time to the breaking of the password.
