Better Passwords is the password generator you have been looking for. Completely customizable and highly flexible.
Generate long, complex but still pronounceable passwords which are therefor easy to remember. Or go crazy and generate absurdly long complex passwords. Sky is the limit!
- pronounceable passwords
- define custom password patterns consisting of character groups
- define the character groups
The screenshots should show you everything you need to know about why you want to buy "Better Passwords"! ;)
Basically you just write a password pattern consisting of character groups (and/or fixed characters) and Better Passwords uses that pattern to generate passwords.
This way you can easily ensure that a password remains pronounceable - just throw a couple of vowels in the password pattern and you will see that you can pronounce most of the generated passwords.
Edit the pre-defined character groups to your liking. The letter 'y' for example is not in the character group "vowels" and maybe you would like it to be.
You can easily add it to the "vowels" group and remove it from the "consonants" group and generate more passwords with the updated character groups. It's that easy.
In the pattern editor you can customize the way your passwords look - the normal keyboard can be used to insert fixed characters (those will appear with a normal font) and the extra keyboard buttons
can be used to insert character groups (these will appear bold in the editor). Upon every change an example password is generated so you can instantly see what kind of password you can expect.
I’ve used MANY password generators but needed one with with pronounceable capability. A couple did have, but were very lacking in execution. Better Passwords is more than great - it’s perfection and excellence. This developer didn’t just create yet another generator for pronounceable and regular secure passwords, he created it to be customizable up the wazoo!
Though the interface may seem unassuming and plain, behind its facade is a powerfully flexible feature I’ve never seen in password generation. First you create Character Groups where you control what individual characters will appear in your passwords. So here you can enter what characters can/can’t be used. Perfect feature for those sites that only allow certain punctuation symbols (not all sites allow all these symbols).
Then you can create Patterns where you specify HOW your character groups will appear. As you create a Pattern, you’re shown a preview of the generated password as well as the character count in real time. After this you just generate passwords based on your criteria, stating how many you want generated at one time.
There are already pre-made Character Groups and Patterns to start with and that can be altered, which is great as it allows for experimentation. Viewing the contents of the Character Groups will start to give you ideas for your own customized password generations…
This app is just beautiful and is perfect for secure or pronounceable passwords of any length.
Tip: Pronounceables are great for site account security questions.
This developer has done an excellent job right out of the gate and other devs with similar apps should take notice on how high password generation’s bar has just been raised.
Just buy Better Passwords!
