Password Generator 1.1

Password Generator is for those times when you need to think of a secure password, however you want something that you might stand a chance of remembering in the future, so nothing too obscure.


Press Generate to create a password. Click the generated password to copy it to the clipboard for pasting elsewhere. There's a few options too if you need to generate a longer password. You can also add your own words by editing the included 'wordlist.txt' file.

As of November 2022, I've also added the option to generate a much more complex password (although this does mean it's much harder to remember), and I've made the harder passwords the default. To generate an easier to remember, but much less secure password, hold the shift key while you click the 'Generate' button.
