Hello! How can we help?

About that password you used...

A strong password is an important security feature and we want to help you create a strong deterrent.

How do we determine the strength of a password? We test the strength of a password by calculating how long it would take to crack with brute force.

Unlike most password strength checkers that just require one of each lowercase/uppercase/number/special characters/at least 6 characters/etc, Circle's more holistic approach provides you with an actionable recommendation to make your password more secure. We require two-factor authentication when you sign in, so evenย if your password is compromised you have a second layer of security. (What is two-factor authentication?)

Remember, it is your responsibility to have a strong password -- but it is also your responsibility to remember that password! Please make a point to remember or securely store your information.
