Generate Random Passwords

Passwordstate has a quite capable Password Generator, and can be used in a couple of ways – each user can have their own personal Password Generator options, or specific options can be assigned to individual Password Lists. We’ll run through some of the options now:

Alphanumerics & Special Characters
You can specify what letters, numerics and special characters will use when generating passwords, but selecting the appropriate options on the ‘Alphanumerics & Special Characters’ Tab. Options are:

  • Include Alphanumerics & Special Characters – if omitted, then only ‘Word Phrases’ will be used to generate the passwords
  • Length – specify the minimum and maximum length of characters/numbers generated
  • Lower-case – choose if you want to include lower-case characters
  • Upper-case – choose if you want to include upper-chase characters
  • Numbers – choose if you would like to include numbers
  • Include higher ratio of alphanumerics vs special characters – if you also choose to include special characters, then you can choose to generate a percentage of alphanumeric characters than special characters
  • Include ambiguous alphanumerics – characters like I , l, and 1 maybe be confusing as it’s difficult to read what they are, and you can choose to ignore these characters
  • Include the following special characters – you can use the predefined ones, or modify to suite your own requirements
  • Include the following brackets – again, you can choose the predefined brackets, or just specify the ones you want to use

Word Phrases
To make the passwords a little easier to read and remember, you can also choose to insert random words within the password itself. There are 10,000 random words which can be used. Options are:

  • Include Word Phrases – to include them or not
  • Number of Words – how many words you would like inserted in the password
  • Maximum Word Length – specify the maximum length of the word which will be generated
