With over a billion accounts compromised
over the last year, using unique, strong, highly random passwords and passphrases has never been more important.
PassWorks® Generator is a menu bar app that creates several types of strong passwords and passphrases with an intuitive
and easy-to-use interface. You can quickly create one of three types of passwords (numeric, alphanumeric, and all
characters) or passphrases consisting of three to eight randomly selected words.
PassWorks Generator's passphrase feature uses a much larger word list than most passphrase generators, with over 175,000 words that are randomly selected in the U.S. version, and over 250,000 words in the international version. You can set the minimum word length from 2 to 6 letters, and the maximum length from 6 to 15 letters.
For numeric and alphanumeric passwords, you can optionally specify additional characters that can be included in the password. For passwords comprised of all characters, you can optionally specify certain characters that are not permitted in the password. All passwords and phrases can be divided into segments from 2 to 6 characters separated by hyphens for readability.
Simply click Copy after generating a password or passphrase to copy it to the pasteboard, paste it within Safari or another app, and it will be deleted from the pasteboard in 30 seconds for security. As another convenient feature, Generator automatically saves your configuration. Click "Launch at login" to automatically start Generator in the menu bar upon login.
