SoftFuse Password Generator Free

Editors' Review

by   / November 09, 2011

All too many people use passwords that are both easy to remember and easy for other people to figure out, which can leave e-mail, Internet banking, and many other sensitive accounts vulnerable to hacking. One of the best ways to protect your accounts is to use a long, randomly generated password, and to use a different one for each account. SoftFuse Password Generator Free makes it easy to create strong, customized passwords. All you have to do is figure out how to keep track of them.

The program's interface is simple, with a box in which users enter the number of characters they want and check boxes for the types of characters they want to include. The character sets include upper case letter, lower case letters, numbers, special characters, and custom characters, and users can easily edit each set. There's also an option to exclude similar characters--upper and lower case O, for example--and a masking feature that lets users create passwords with a particular syntax. For such a simple program, the Help file is surprisingly detailed, with plenty of information about the password generator's features. Overall, we think that SoftFuse Password Generator Free is a great program to have around, especially as security experts recommend that people change their passwords regularly. This simple utility will ensure that your passwords are ironclad.

SoftFuse Password Generator Free installs politely, but leaves a folder behind upon removal.
