CryptoPhrase uses cryptographically secure random data to generate memorable and strong passphrases.
Use CryptoPhrase to generate:
• A master passphrase for a password management application
• A key for encrypting your hard drive or emails
• A passphrase to log in to your computer
• A secure passphrase that you are required to change often
• A passphrase to use anywhere you want both security and memorability
CryptoPhrase solves one of the most difficult issues in cryptography and computer security – the ability to create a passphrase that is both secure and memorable. People tend to create insecure passphrases because they often feature personally identifiable information such as birthdays, the name of a pet, a your favorite sports team, etc. Someone trying to guess your passphrase uses this to their advantage by limiting their guesses to include this information. The solution to this is simple: a randomly generated passphrase.
However, most randomized password generators create an impossible-to-remember string of jumbled characters such as: 1E)ne@45C80p%Wk#. This eliminates the personally identifiable information from your passphrase, but because there is no meaning to a random string of numbers, letters and symbols, it is very difficult to remember. CyrptoPhrase uses the same principle of randomness, but uses a set of common, meaningful English words. The result is a passphrase that is both memorable and secure.

All Yays for CryptoPhrase
This app is great to create temp passwords for clients. Don't have to think…So far, clients have retained their CryptoPhrase passwords. Like the design too and think it's fun to generate different word combos.
Great for setting temporary client passwords as well as creating memorable passwords for myself.
