Advanced Password Generator provides users with a randomly compiled list of passwords based on specific parameters. With simple controls, this is a great tool for increasing online security; however, trial limitations make it hard to grasp its full potential.
The program's interface is slightly confusing upon first glace. Users may be overwhelmed with the number of radio buttons and numbers scattered throughout the small screen. However, with a little experimenting or a visit to the Help file, users will learn the program's functions. While we would like to see a cleaner setup, the program does a fine job by laying all options out on the screen. Choosing the parameters is simple enough, thanks to the aforementioned buttons. While the trial version only allows users to use the smallest options, the program has the capability of generating passwords of any length and lists that run into the thousands. The passwords we did create reflected the choices we made and provided a random swath of possible passwords.
The program's most interesting feature was its database. Understanding that users may forget their random passwords, this feature lets you catalog what password you use for various sites, which we found very helpful. While its layout could be a little cleaner, we found Advanced Password Generator to be a helpful tool in creating passwords. This program is a great choice to improve online security.
