If you want a secure password (meaning: hard to crack rather than being 100% safe) then it should be longer, should include capitalization, punctuation and numbers (the more unfamiliar the numbers/phrases the better, such as not using your name or birth date etc).
But if you usually need to generate powerful passwords with ease and looking for a simple tool to get the job done (in Windows), then ‘FlyingBit Password Generator’ is a pretty good looking tool for that. It lets you create passwords with 3 to 64 characters; including only numbers, Hex decimal values, letters, lower case/upper case or mixing all of them for maximum security and you can also exclude duplicate and similar characters (for ease of remembering I suppose) as well.
Unlike with some other similar tools, you cannot manually enter characters for the password generation. You can create up to 300 passwords and copy each one individually or save them all into a text file.
But one of the important features of all is that, it shows you the Phonetic version of the created password so you can memorize it easily. Once you’ve memorized the Phonetic version of a particular password, then you just gotta remember the first letter of each Phonetic for creating the password later (it can be a bit complicated if you’ve used lower and upper cases, numbers).
You can easily make it portable too (carry in your USB drive for instance). For that once the installation completes, just go to your ‘Program files’ folder and locate ‘Flyingbit -> Password Generator’, then copy the ‘Password Generator’ folder and its content to your USB drive (or anywhere you want) and then double click on the file called ‘PassGen’ (in any computer) and it’ll open the main window of the program.
That’s pretty much it.
So, if you want a free tool that lets you create powerful passwords and a way to memorize them easily (somewhat), then why not go to this page and give it a go :).
