Editors' Review

Easily create passwords to your specifications with this freeware password-generation tool. Password Miner's dialog interface is easy to master. The Help file is just a two page read me file (misleading in one case), but the program is dead simple to understand.

Operating Password Miner is as easy as falling down. Enter a master password, a URL or keyword, and a username. Click a few options to set password length and type. Then press the generate button to get a unique password. Where this app misleads is to claim the passwords are random. If so, they couldn't be recreated by entering the same master, user, and URL. What this program does is use an algorithm to make a password based on the seed data. That makes it a program that will help users remember only their Master Password. Enter it, the URL, and username anytime you need to see Password Miner's recommended password for that site and user.

The app takes an extra step by storing URLs when requested. Passwords can include small or capital letters, numbers, and symbols. Password length is limited to a 1000-character maximum. We didn't test anything larger than 20.

It's too bad that Password Miner isn't a portable application. It would be great to carry on a USB toolbox. Home, office, and laptop users who need an easy method to recreate passwords should give this app a thorough test. It's more secure than apps that simply store passwords.
