Screenshots Tour

This is a brief screenshots tour of a product. It highlights some of the major product features. For more detailed information on product features, please see video demonstrations and check product features section.

Note! The term password means any random string that can be generated like: passwords, keycodes, numbers, pins, usernames, etc.
Random password generator basic generation mode

Password Generation with Character Groups and Policies

You use character groups to control which characters can appear in your passwords. With character policies you can eliminate possible weaknesses in your passwords, like the presence of duplicate or consecutive characters.

In Basic Generation Mode you can generate secure passwords with minimal required customizations.

Random password generator advanced generation mode

Generate Advanced Passwords

In Advanced Generation Mode you can control more aspects of the generation process. You can define and use custom character groups, as well as relative order of characters using group order mask. In addition you can control the frequency of appearance of all characters.

Note on the screenshot the group order mask used, the characters in the second custom character group, and resulting passwords.

Random password generator pronounceable generation mode

Generate Pronounceable Passwords

You can generate easy to remember, pronounceable, but secure passwords in Pronounceable Generation Mode. You can control which characters will be used using special phonetic character groups where you can select allowed consonants and vowels. In addition you can control other options like the chance for a double consonant or vowel to appear as well as presence of numeric digits.

Random password generator mask generation mode for keycodes

Use Masks for Keycodes and Usernames

In Mask Generation Mode you can use more advanced masks to generate keycodes, serial numbers, pins, and usernames that must follow a particular pattern with explicit control for character placement.

In addition, certain "building blocks" like "words" from dictionaries, strings from databases (defined in data-bound dictionaries), and sequences can only be used in Mask generation mode.

Note the generated passwords and usernames and their respective masks on the left (usernames are always generated according to a specified mask). Also note the #H hexadecimal sequence in the password mask, its values in the generated passwords, and its definition on the right.

Random number generator

Generate Random Numbers

In Number Generation Mode you can generate whole and fractional random numbers that either fall within a specified range or match a given statistical distribution. Negative numbers can be generated by specifying the minimum value less than zero.

You can also specify the numeric base (radix) of the generated numbers.

Random word generator

Use "words" and String Literals

When generating passwords in Mask Generation Mode or when generating usernames you can use literal strings and words taken from either built-in dictionaries or custom data sources (custom dictionaries and data-bound dictionaries).

A custom data source can be a simple text file or a database from which text data will be retrieved according to the settings and filters you specify. Before being used, this data is then further transformed according to the options you specified in a "dictionary" that manages the custom data source.

Note on the screenshot how the words from built-in dictionary A are used in the generated passwords according to the specified mask and dictionary settings.

Statistical distribution generator

Generate Statistically Distributed Random Numbers

In Number Generation Mode you can generate random numbers that match one of 17 built-in statistical distributions, so that generated numbers will be distributed according to distribution's probability density function.

The following continuous distributions are supported: Normal / Gaussian, Beta, Chi Square, Student-T, Cauchy, Chi, Continuous Uniform, Exponential, Gamma, Laplace, Log-Normal, Pareto.

The following discrete distributions are supported: Bernoulli, Binomial, Discrete Uniform, Geometric, Poisson.

Random password generator transformations

Manipulate and Transform Your Passwords

Using Transforms you can further manipulate, tweak, and modify generated passwords and usernames, so that you are completely satisfied with the final result.

For example, you can: replace, insert, append, and delete strings of text or individual characters; convert generated passwords or only specified characters to Morse Code, Leet Speak, Base-64; manipulate characters - reverse order of, shuffle, change letter case; etc.

Transforms will be applied as long as they are enabled and as long there is at least one active transform present in the transforms list. Transforms can be applied in any generation mode, to both passwords and usernames, and are always applied last, but before any filter and duplicate checks are performed.

Note on the screenshot active Append Transform, its options (append 2 copies of string _extra), and its result on the generated passwords.

Random password generator overrides

Apply Transforms to Already Generated Passwords

Transforms can be applied in two ways: first, they can be applied automatically when you are generating passwords or usernames; second, they can be applied manually later to already generated passwords.

To apply transforms manually, simply select passwords to which you want to apply transforms, right-click on the selection, and click Apply Transforms.

Note: the active Reverse Characters Transform and its result on the selected passwords (as compared with the previous screenshot).

String hash generator

Compute Hashes

You can easily compute hashes of generated passwords and usernames using specified hashing or checksum algorithm. The following hash / checksum algorithms are supported: SHA1, SHA2, MD5, RIPE-MD, CRC.

You can also specify the encoding in which passwords should first be saved, before a hash can be computed on the actual byte representation of the encoded password.

Also note the usefulness of the MDI - Multiple Document Interface that allows you to work with several documents at once, as shown on the screenshot.

Core Features

  • Generate millions of passwords

    This product lets you generate millions of passwords and usernames in a matter of minutes. The precise speed and the number of passwords that can be generated depend on the available memory and processor speed. We guarantee ability to generate at least 50 000 000 passwords, provided there is enough memory (each password requires 2 x n + 4 bytes of storage, where n is the number of characters in a password, and 2 bytes per character are due to passwords being in Unicode).

  • Generate Directly to File PRO

    The product can generate passwords, directly writing them to a file on disk, completely bypassing User Interface. This will not only result in considerable speed up and save system resources, but will allow you to generate truly large number of passwords, in excess of tens of millions!

  • 5 Generation Modes

    The product offers 5 different generation modes, each with different options and functionality. The kind of passwords / keycodes you want to generate will influence the generation mode you select.

  • Basic Mode

    If all you want is just quickly generate strong passwords, without having to go through many options, Basic Generation Mode is there for you. It lets you specify the length, turn on or off lower case characters, upper case character, numerals, special characters, as well as enable or disable character policies (see below).

  • Advanced Mode

    Advanced mode is similar to Basic Mode, except it has far more options. It allows you to control precisely what characters you want to see in your passwords and what characters you do not want to see appearing. In addition, you can control how often a particular character or group of characters will appear, as well as where (roughly) it will be placed – at the beginning, in the middle, at the end, or somewhere randomly.

    Sample case would be: password that contains lower case, upper case, and numeric characters with 10:10:5 ratio, excluding Capital letter B, and it should not start with a number.

  • Mask Mode PRO

    Masking Mode is different from the previous two modes in a number of ways. First and foremost, it gives you complete control over character placement. It can still be random, of course, but you can precisely control the boundaries of this randomness.

    In addition, it allows you to use more sophisticated 'building blocks' in your passwords: words or items from external files / databases, and sequential numbers – parts that are automatically incremented with every new password generated.

    On top of that, masking mode has several 'operators' that give you even more flexibility. For example, random distribution operator (...) can be used if you want to randomly distribute building blocks (be it characters, words, or sequences) in certain part of the mask.

  • Pronounceable Mode

    Pronounceable Mode makes it super easy to generate passwords that are easy to pronounce. It too has several unique options. For instance, you can enable usage of double vowels and consonants, so that passwords like 'umbrella' would be possible.

  • Number Mode PRO

    Number Generation Mode allows you to generate random numbers (whole, negative, floating point) in mathematical sense of a word. You can specify number range within which the generated numbers should fall. You can also have the generated numbers match a given statistical distribution like Normal, Geometric, or Uniform (there are 17 built-in distributions - both discrete and continuous).

  • Generate Random Numbers PRO

    You can generate random numbers within a specified range or matching a given distribution.

  • 17 Built-in Statistical Distributions

    You can generate random numbers that will form a given statistical distribution.

    The following continuous distributions are supported: Normal / Gaussian, Beta, Chi Square, Student-T, Cauchy, Chi, Continuous Uniform, Exponential, Gamma, Laplace, Log-Normal, Pareto

    The following discrete distributions are supported: Bernoulli, Binomial, Discrete Uniform, Geometric, Poisson

  • Random Numbers within range

    Generate whole or fractional random numbers within specified range. You can set the lower bound to be less than zero to generate negative numbers.

  • Use different numeric bases (radix)

    You can specify the format of the generated random numbers, including its base (radix). You can specify any base between 2 and 36, including binary, octal, decimal, and hexadecimal.

    Other formatting options include leading zero character selection, minimum length in digits.

  • Character Groups

    Character Groups are distinct collections of characters grouped together for convenience. They make it easy to control password composition and character placement. For example, if you place a lower case character group placeholder in a mask, you can precisely control where lower case character(s) should appear. What's more is that you can easily remove and add characters from a character group. That way you can exclude unwanted characters with a single click!

    There are 4 built-in basic character groups, 4 built-in phonetic character groups, and you can define up to 9 custom character groups - each with arbitrary set of characters, including non-ASCII characters!

  • Basic Character Groups

    There are 4 Basic Character Groups: lower case, upper case, numeric, and special (punctuation and others).

  • Phonetic Character Groups

    There are 4 Phonetic Character Groups: vowels, consonants, double vowels, and double consonants. These character groups are mainly used by the Pronounceable Generation Mode, but you are free to use them in Advanced and Masking Mode as well, though the last two phonetic character groups would be hardly useful in modes other than Pronounceable.

  • User-Defined Character Groups

    You can create up to 9 custom character groups. Each custom character group can contain an arbitrary set of characters, including non-ASCII, Unicode characters. Custom character groups allow you to create groups of characters that make sense to you and help you accomplish your goals.

  • Advanced Masks PRO

    Masks can be thought of as blueprints for the passwords / codes you want to generate. While the masks are used by only 2 generation modes – Advanced and Masking, they are extremely useful.

    In Advanced Generation Mode only simple masks are allowed, though you still can accomplish quite a lot with them. For example, (lun)sn is a perfectly valid mask for Advanced Mode. In this case it means that the first part of a password will consist of upper case, lower case, and numeric characters intermixed with each other, followed by special (punctuation and miscellaneous) characters, followed by numeric characters. In the Advanced Mode, the precise number of characters for each character type is determined by the appropriate character's group Density property and the passwords overall length.

    In Masking Mode, the masks can be much more sophisticated, as they can contain operators, sequences, words, literals, and even data taken from outside sources. A thing to note is that in the Masking Mode, in contrast with Advanced Mode, a character group placeholder always corresponds to a single character from that group (whereas in Advanced Mode character group placeholder may correspond to more than one character from that group - see above).

  • Masking Resources

    Masks, and ultimately the passwords which they correspond to, can be though to consist of distinct building blocks, or resources, and operators that manipulate these resources. There are several kinds of resources that masks can contain:

    • Character Group Placeholders - these will be replaced with actual characters from the appropriate character groups.
    • Dictionary Placeholders - these will be replaced with words or items taken from built in dictionaries, external text files, or even databases.
    • Sequence Placeholders - these represent parts of the password that are supposed to be incremented by a fixed amount with every new password being generated. Sequences can be binary, decimal, hexadecimal, alphanumeric, or of arbitrary base. See sequences feature for more information.
    • Literals - these represent unchangeable pieces of text that you type-in.

    This wide variety of building bocks gives you an idea of how flexible the program is.

  • Masking Operators

    In addition to resources, masks can have operators that manipulate those resources. Here are some of the masking operators:

    • Random Element Distribution (...) - randomizes the relative placement of all resources within the parentheses, such as individual characters, words, sequences, and literals.
    • Random Character Distribution ((...)) - randomizes the relative placement of all characters within the parentheses, even if it contains composite resources like words, sequences, and literals (thus it destroys words, random numbers, sequences, as the position of all constituent characters is randomized).
    • Random Length {CharacterGroupPlaceholder;min,max} - takes random characters from the appropriate character group between min and max number of times.
    • Range [basen,#ofdigits,min,max] - returns a formatted random number of base n with a value between min and max.
    • Random Placement - a complex operator that allows for scenarios such as if Part A is here, then Part B is there, and PART C is over there, and vice versa (parts here represent submasks, and their number is arbitrary).

    But that’s not all – operators can be nested in one another, which gives you truly infinite possibilities.

  • Keycode Generation

    With such advanced masking capabilities, support for multiple sequences in a single mask, and ability to insert external data from databases into your keycodes, you can easily create all kinds of keycodes for all your needs: be it generating unique lottery ticket numbers, pin codes, serial numbers, or anything else!

  • Use Words & Text Items PRO

    You can use words or other textual items in your passwords! These items can be taken from any of the 4 built-in Dictionaries, your own Dictionary (practically an external text file), or even from a Database.

    In addition you can control which items are to be taken with various filters, and how they are supposed to be manipulated using letter-case masks, and other tools. And what's more - you can have several such textual items in your password!

  • From built-in "dictionaries"

    There are 4 built-in dictionaries (collections of 'words') in the program: Default (nouns, adjectives, verbs), Given Names, Family Names, and Movie Characters - overall totaling at around 90 000 words.

  • From user-defined text files

    You can also use words taken from external textual files in your passwords. These external textual files are regarded as user-defined dictionaries by the program, where each line is treated as a word. All the settings that you can apply to built-in dictionaries are applicable for user-defined dictionaries as well. For instance, before a word is inserted, it can be capitalized, first few letters removed, tuned into uppercase, etc.

  • From databases

    You can use data from any ODBC-compliant database (SQL Server, MS Access, Oracle, MySQL, etc.) in your passwords. It works by adding a special kind of user-defined dictionary, where source of data is a database, and words are items returned by the SELECT SQL query that you specify.

  • Use Sequences like 009, 00A, 00B... PRO

    Sequences are quite far from being random. Essentially they are elements that you can use in masks, whenever you want the codes you are generating to have incrementally adjusted and formatted parts. For example, you may want to generate 10 000 codes, where first 5 characters should be in the form 00001 through 10000, i.e. this part should be incremented by 1 starting from 00001 and formatted with all leading zeroes included. Sequences allow for exactly such a thing!

    But sequences need not be decimal. They can be binary, hexadecimal, alphanumeric, or in fact of any base up to base 36. In addition, you can specify starting value, increment amount (positive to advance, negative to decrement), maximum and minimum value, and other settings. You can define up to 9 custom sequences.

    Also note that sequences are a nice way to make sure that all generated passwords / codes are unique (but there is a special uniqueness setting as well).

  • Transforms PRO

    Various built-in transforms can be applied to generated passwords as the last step in the generation process or even to the already generated passwords. Transforms allow you to further fine-tune the passwords being generated, enabling you to add, replace, or remove strings of text; affect the casing or order of characters; convert generated strings to Morse code, Leet Speak, Base-64; generate hashes, and get character codes; and perform other manipulations.

    You can apply multiple transforms in a sequential manner. You can also specify exactly which characters in the original string should be affected (you can set the starting and ending characters and / or set RegEx pattern that should match only specific characters). You can specify how the transformed string should be merged with the original: you can set it to overwrite original, overwrite affected characters only, insert before or after the original.

  • Replace, Insert, Delete Text

    There are different transforms that allow you to replace specific characters and text strings in the generated passwords. You can also insert or append new string literals; or even remove certain unwanted strings.

  • Morse Code Conversion

    You can convert applicable characters in the generated strings to their Morse Code equivalents.

  • Leet Speak Conversion

    You can convert applicable characters in the generated strings to their Leet Speak equivalents.

  • Base-64 Conversion

    You can encode generated passwords in base 64.

  • Characters: Reverse, Shuffle, Change Case...

    You can perform various manipulations on individual characters like changing letter case. In addition you can reverse, shift by a certain amount, or randomize the order of characters.

  • Convert Number Base

    Provided that the generated string is a number, you can convert its base (radix) to any other base between 2 and 36.

  • Compute hashes

    You can compute hashes of generated strings in the specified encoding and using specified hashing algorithm: SHA1, SHA2, MD5, RIPE-MD, CRC.

  • Many Other Transforms

    There are many other transformations that you can perform, including getting Unicode character codes, byte codes, performing HTML & URL encode / decode operations.

  • Character Policies PRO

    Character Policies are special options that you can turn on and off (and tweak a little) that make sure certain conditions and requirements are met for the passwords being generated. For example, your policy may be that you allow no more than 2 consecutive characters in your passwords, so that abedgh is allowed, but not abcefg; or maybe you are not allowing repeating characters like the letter s in the word password. In all these cases, character policies help you ensure that all these restrictions are followed.

  • Consecutive Characters

    A Consecutive Character policy, when activated, makes sure that no more than the specified number of consecutive characters appears (1 by default, which means no consecutive characters are allowed).

    Consecutive characters are those that appear next to each other and form a sequence. In that regard, there are 2 versions of this policy: one for logical consecutive characters like abc, or 123, and one for keyboard consecutive characters like qwerty.

    So for example, the word about will not be allowed, as the letters a and b form a forbidden sequence.

    You can also specify whether or not to treat lower case and upper case variants of the same letter as being the same.

  • Similar Characters

    A Similar Character policy, when activated, makes sure that no predefined similar characters can appear in a password at all. This is usually applied to 0oO1iIl characters.

  • Repeating Characters

    A Repeating Character policy, when activated, makes sure that no more than the specified number of repeating characters appears (1 by default, which means no repeating characters are allowed).

    So for example, the word password will not be allowed, as the letter s is repeated.

    You can also specify whether or not to treat lower case and upper case variants of the same letter as being the same.

  • Duplicate Characters

    A Duplicate Character policy, when activated, makes sure that no more than the specified number of duplicate characters appears (1 by default, which means no duplicate characters are allowed).

    This is actually a superset of Repeating Character Policy case; because here we do not allow characters to appear more than the specified number of times regardless of where they are in a password (they need not be next to one another, as in the Repeating Character Policy, for this policy to be triggered). So, if this policy is enabled, then the Repeating Character Policy is practically ignored.

    So for example, the word password will not be allowed just as the word suspend, as the letter s appears more than once.

    You can also specify whether or not to treat lower case and upper case variants of the same letter as being the same.

  • Random Number Generators

    How does the program generate random passwords? That is where does the randomness come from?

    At the core of the generation process is the Random Number Generator (RNG), which creates randomness that the program then uses to make random choices, such as character selection and placement.

    The product comes with 5 different internal random number generators that you can choose from. In choosing an RNG there is usually an associated tradeoff between the speed and randomness (which implies security, as more random = better security): the better randomness RNG generates, the slower it is.

    The fastest RNG is XOR-Shift 128, which is a xorshift pseudo-random number generator with period 2^128-1. The most secure RNG, and the one which generates the best randomness, is the FIPS-140 compliant Cryptographically Secure RNG. The other 3 RNGs are: Mersenne Twister pseudo-random number generator with period 2^19937-1; Additive Lagged Fibonacci pseudo-random number generator that uses the modulus 232, and by default the 'lags' 418 and 1279; and the one provided by the system.

    You can to an extent control RNGs by setting the value for the initial random seed.

  • Cryptographically Secure FIPS-140 RNG PRO

    You can generate FIPS-140 (Federal Information Processing Standard) compliant passwords and keycodes by utilizing program's Cryptographically Secure RNG that generates the best, standards-compliant 'randomness'.

  • Username Generation PRO

    You can generate usernames along with passwords, much the same way as you generate passwords. Usernames are generated according to a specified mask. You can then export generated usernames along with passwords to a database, or use them to update existing passwords in a database.

  • Duplicate Removal & Unique Password Generation PRO

    The product lets you generate truly unique passwords. That is the program can make sure that all generated passwords will be different.

    There are two ways in which this can be accomplished. Number one: the program simply makes sure there are no duplicate passwords as it is generating them. Number two: the program can search for and remove duplicate passwords from the ones already in the list. The latter option is useful if you are generating passwords in several stages, or if you imported some date into the password list.

  • Unicode Support for non-ASCII characters

    Your passwords can contain non-ASCII characters, as the program has full support for Unicode. In fact, as you define your own character groups, you can easily add non-ASCII characters into them. In fact, you can generate passwords and usernames with no Latin letters at all, but with say Cyrillic letters. This gives you full flexibility.


    The generated passwords and usernames can be easily exported into XML document, CSV or TXT file, or HTML web page.

Convenience Features

  • Office 2010 Ribbon User Interface

    UI similar to Office 2010 with detailed tool tips puts all the important controls at your fingertips, improving ease of use.

  • Extensive Help & Documentation

    The program comes with good built-in and external help. When you start the program, an optional Tip of the Day is shown that provides insight into some of the program's features. Within the program there are numerous tooltips that clearly explain what a particular control does. And of course, there is detailed help that clearly explains all aspects of the program – from concepts such as Character Groups and Masks, to User Interface elements.

  • Presets

    The product can involve a lot of customization. For example you may want to customize character groups by including or excluding certain characters, or want to customize sequences. In addition, you may want to have several different presets of these customizations. You can do precisely that, as the program lets you easily save all your customizations to a particular area into a separate file that you can reuse later (this is in addition, of course, to the program automatically remembering all settings upon exit).

  • Easily Accessible Settings & Controls

    Most of the settings in the program are accessible through what's called property grids that feature various drop-down controls that make it very easy to tweak different settings.

  • Printing Support

    The program comes with full printing support, including page setup and print preview.

  • Search & Replace

    The program lets you perform Search and Replace operations within the list of generated passwords and usernames. There is also an option to use Regular Expressions if you want.

  • Getting Started Screen

    When you start the program, an optional Getting Started Screen welcomes you and presents you with several common choices of what to do next (generating new passwords, opening existing password lists, etc.), making it easy for you to get started quickly.

  • Numerous Options

    The program has numerous options that control various aspects of its behavior.

  • Complete Clipboard Support

    Full clipboard support is included. You can copy and cut various parts of the password list, and then paste them into other places in the same password list, into a different password list, or into a different program altogether - like Microsoft Excel for example.

  • Sorting & Shuffling List Operations

    You can perform various list-related operations with a list of generated passwords. You can sort either the whole list or just the selected part, you can shuffle items in the list, or you can copy/move selected items from one list into a different list - all with a click of a button!

  • Updates

    The program continually checks for updates and notifies you when updates are available. This includes updates to password filters, dictionaries, and other resources.

Advanced Features

  • Weak & Custom Password Filters

    The program offers the ability to automatically filter-out unwanted weak common passwords, such as 2welcome or a1b2c3d4. This way it makes sure that no such passwords will be present in the list, even if the chance of them being randomly generated is very small. This significantly improves the security.

    This Weak Password Filter is implemented by the program comparing every generated password to a predefined list of common passwords. In addition, with the help of Custom Filter, you may create your own lists of words, passwords, and textual items that you want the generated passwords to be checked against.

  • Hash Generation - SHA1, SHA2, MD5, RIPE-MD, CRC SVR

    The program lets you generate not just passwords, keycodes, and usernames, but also their hashes, that you can later save or export. The supported hash formats include: SHA2 (512, 384, and 256 bits), SHA1 (160 bits), and MD5 (128 bits), RIPE-MD (160 bits), CRC (16 & 32 bits).

  • Data Protection & Encryption SVR

    You can save the generated passwords in an encrypted XML file, protecting it with a password of your choice.

  • Database Export SVR

    The product lets you export generated passwords and/or usernames to any ODBC-compliant database, including SQL Server, MS Access, Oracle, MySQL, etc.

    There are 2 modes of export: you can insert new records into the table and columns of your choice or you can update existing records with the values generated by the program.

  • Export to Microsoft Excel SVR

Useful Tips

Reasons to use passwords

There are many reasons to use passwords. Here are some common reasons to use them:

  • to prevent unauthorized access to important information
  • to guarantee security of personal information
  • to prevent unauthorized access to user accounts, such as computer and email accounts
  • to be able to use various Internet services securely

Passwords will not protect you! But random passwords will!

To begin discussion about the importance of random passwords, it must be said that it is a myth that frequently used passwords or passwords that are based on personal information are secure. The fact is - they are not. Furthermore, even if you are to use some free random password generators online, you will be far from being safe, as those random password generators lack sophisticated security and randomization technology required to generate truly random passwords. So why do people rely on the passwords they make up in their heads or the ones generated free online tools? Here are the common reasons why people might use such passwords:

  • They are easy for users to remember, because they include personal information about the user.
  • They consist of known words that can be found in many hacker password dictionaries.
  • They contain number or letter sequences or letter-to-number substitutions, such as E for 3 or O for zero.

Look through the above list of reasons why people use "easy passwords" and think do they really worth the risk of someone being able to hack into your user accounts and steal or even delete your information? The answer is No, - it does not worth that risk!

Realizing that there is a need for a new generation of random password generators that will have advanced randomization methods and security checks, we set to work on Password Generator 2016. The result is that we created user-friendly, easy-to-use, and yet professional and customizable tool that generates very strong and secure random passwords - truly random passwords if you wish.

Truly random passwords have one major advantage compared to other passwords (those that you make up in your head for example). They are simply more secure and reliable, as it is impossible to guess them, and extremely difficult to crack.

Look through the following advantages of random passwords, generated by Password Generator 2016 compared to regular passwords:

  • Advanced randomization technology ensures that the password is unique and that it is impossible to guess.
  • Automated cracking programs will have hard time trying to crack passwords, because passwords are composed of lower case letters, upper case letters, numbers, punctuation symbols, and other characters, that are distributed randomly in the password.
  • Because of frequent alternation of vowels and consonants, it is possible to generate passwords that are very easy-to-remember, but yet that are very safe.

Few Password Tips

We suggest you review the following password tips, as there is not a single password generator that will protect you, if for example you write down your passwords and live them on your desk.

  • Others can hear you give a password to someone you trust. So do not say your password aloud.
  • Someone looking over your shoulder can discover a password.
  • Don't keep a copy of your password in a desk drawer, on a monitor, or under a keyboard.
  • Your password is yours alone. So don't share it with anyone, including supervisors, personal assistants, or IT personnel.
  • Never write down your password. You wouldn't write down your PIN number for your ATM card, would you?
  • Do not e-mail your password to a co-worker, or offer anyone hints about what your password might be.
