Editors' Review

Passwords are the computer user's eternal paradox. If you make a password easy enough to remember, it's likely not very secure. If it's a strong password, you'll be prone to forgetting it--unless you write it on a notepad next to your computer, which again compromises your security. Random Password Generator is an extremely easy-to-use program that can help you create strong passwords and keep them stored securely.

When we first launched Random Password Generator we were prompted to create a master password that would protect the password manager from prying eyes. The program has an intuitive tabbed interface, and we had no trouble getting started. The password generator tab lets you customize your passwords by selecting the length and whether or not to include lowercase and uppercase letters, numbers, and punctuation. The program can generate up to 100 passwords at a time. Once the passwords were generated, the program let us associate them with particular accounts by entering our username and a note about the name of the account. A colored block next to each entry indicated the strength of each password, a useful feature if you want to evaluate passwords that you're already using. It's easy to get your passwords from the password manager and into your log-in screen, too; the program lets users copy their usernames and passwords so that they can be pasted directly into the desired location. You can also export and print lists of your passwords. Random Password Generator doesn't have a Help file, but that's okay; everything about it is intuitive. Overall, we liked Random Password Generator very much. It's easy enough for just about anyone to use, but it provides an important defense against identity theft, credit card fraud, and other perils of the Internet.

Random Password Generator installs and uninstalls without issues.

"Useful if you want to quickly generate passwords."

February 02, 2013  |  By treadhead1952

 |  Version: Random Password Generator 1.3

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.
