    If it is a short password, then brute force will definitely catch it. Just to tell you how many eight-letter alphanumeric passwords are there, the number is \(2.8211099\cdot 10^{12}\).

    However, a simple desktop brute force will not be able to catch your password in a trillion years if it's something like twenty characters that don't have a dictionary word.
