There’s a password to log into your Mac. There are passwords for logging in to online sites. There are PIN numbers.
And, there are the two most common passwords in use today. Try password, and 123456. That’s why there should be an easier way to create secure passwords. One of my favorite Mac apps to create tough, long, secure passwords is PwGenerator.
A few bucks gets Mac users a slick and simple interface that makes very tough passwords instantly.
Take a look at PwGenerator.
That’s just about as visually self explanatory as an app can get.
The slider bar changes the number of characters in the generated password. Selec a mixture of Capital Letters, Small Letters, Digits, and Symbols using the slider bar to generate a percentage of each.
The password strength meter at the bottom tells you how strong the password is. There are options to create specific types of passwords, including WEP, WPA, and WPA2 for use in Wi-Fi routers.
PwGenerator also saves passwords and can create multiples in a batch.
It’s simple to create and save lengthy, secure passwords with just a few clicks. In fact, PwGenerator is actually fun to use.
What I would like to see is a speakable password option. Who can remember 2j3aR7pAAcq#&5?
