are a cumbersome protection and privacy tool that is universally or almost
universally used from Internet web sites to log-on profiles at many workplaces.
If you do much work with computers, you are familiar with the fact that
they can accumulate very quickly. After you have created or made up a password,
it is important for you to remember it. Not only that, you want to make
sure that the password you generate or make up cannot be easily guessed.
Password Generator is a freeware program that allows you to create any
quantity of passwords with one easy click of the mouse. If you are like
me, and you generate or have a number of “memberships” or multiple sites
that you may “log on to,” either frequently or infrequently, then this
program will let you generate passwords that would make it very difficult
for anyone to guess. You can generate passwords from 1-24 symbols in length.
You can program it to exclude similar or difficult to discern symbols such
as capital O’s and zeroes, capital I’s and the numeral 1. Additionally,
you can include special symbols like !, or #, into the password. There
is even a special algorithm that adds vowels to the generated passwords
to make pronunciation easier. Finally, you can test your passwords to make
sure you know them before using them. You can then save a single password
or a password list to a text file or to the clipboard.
The program installed easily on my system and does not go into the registry
to add layers and slow down or muck up your system. The most recent version
is 1.21 and it was updated in February of 2002. It is also packaged as
a very compact zip file, taking up only 24 KB of download space. When you
have forgotten a password or, as in my case, many passwords, then this
program is a better mousetrap for you acquire. There are many, many password
generators out there for you to choose from. I like this one because it
has proficiency built into it’s simplicity.
