You can improve this a bit by setting more hashing rounds (default is 5000):
It's worth to read the hints in crypt(5):
"[..] Supported on Linux but not common elsewhere. Acceptable for new
hashes. The default CPU time cost parameter is 5000, which is too low
for modern hardware."
So as long as you're only using Linux it's fine. But if you want to
migrate to other Unix-like OS or Windows these hashes won't work anymore.
