Password Hasher

By Steve Cooper Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009

This free Firefox extension generates more secure passwords, but we weren't able to access all of its features.

Password Hashers user interface can be found through the Add-ons menu. You can choose your security level, and the length of the password. There's also a checkbox for the default requirements--upper and lowercase letters, one punctuation character, and at least one digit. An extensive tabbed Help menu is available through the Options menu. There's an interesting Portable Page option that lets you create a page to run if the program is unavailable. We weren't able to access the custom options section. Passwords are quickly generated after entering your master password.

This program worked well for the most part, but since we couldn't access the custom options, we can't give it a full recommendation.
