My version of password_checker

had some fun with the pass checker code, now after the last failed attempt it disables all keys plus keyboard interruptions so you can't ctrl+c out of the program. It still stores the password in plain text but it was just for fun, I ran the file as a command in my bashrc so now when you open your terminal you need the password to actually access it.

import sys
import time
import keyboard
import signal, os

x = False

password = input("Enter the password ")
attempt_count = 1
while password != "Secure-passwd":
    if attempt_count > 3:
      print("Too many invalid password attempts Now the system is frozen forever........")
      signal.signal(signal.SIGINT, signal.SIG_IGN)
      while not x: time.sleep(0.1)
      for i in range(99999999999999999999):

    password = input("Invalid password try again: ")
    attempt_count += 1
