How did they cracked safes in the old times?

Physicist Richard Feynman cracked safes or filing cabinets at Los Alamos during the Manhattan Project, because he was not allowed to go home. Professor Roger Bowley explains how the renown physicst was able to compute the amount of work needed to find out the right combination or the right path to crack a safe.

Mostly, the easiest way to crack a safe was by thinking that the owner created a password that contained a birth date or something similar. From cracking a safe in days he was able to refine the number of tries and he could crack it in 12 minutes. The same applies today: if we use simple passwords the crackers are able to get into our accounts. Stay safe!
