    "Useful if you want to quickly generate passwords."

    February 2, 2013  |   By treadhead1952

    Pros

    Regular password changes are the one of the only ways to keep ahead of the hacker weasels who seem to delight in worming their way into anyone and everyone's computers from 8 year olds to Uncle Sam. Rather than spending a great deal of time and imagination trying to come up with enough of them to keep your data reasonably secure on a regular basis Random Password Generator does this for you quickly and easily.

    Cons

    While it does do it's namesake function pretty efficiently, do not rely on it's secure storage of your Randomly Generated Passwords. Getting into that is actually laughably simple.

    Summary

    Choosing the number of places for your passwords, using as many different types of characters from letters in upper and lower case, numbers and symbols as well as changing the passwords on a regular basis is an excellent way to foil attempts to get into your data. While some places limit your choices by not allowing one or more types of characters, some don't allow symbols, others numbers just limits your password effectiveness. To get around this change them regularly. Rely on a storage system other than the native one the program offers you. Other than that, it is pretty handy and easy to use.
