De­spite its name, Dalen­ry­der Pass­word Gen­er­a­tor does a lot more than just come up with new pass­words. It’s a handy col­lec­tion of se­cu­rity tools pack­aged in a smart, in­tu­itive in­ter­face. The front screen gives you ac­cess to all the avail­able fea­tures, which in­clude a Quick Pass­word cre­ator, Pass­word Safe, En­cryp­tion Tool, PIN gen­er­a­tor, Pass­word Lab, Check tool and Add Sym­bol func­tion.

Quick Pass­word can gen­er­ate pass­words of be­tween four and 30 char­ac­ters. The Pass­word Safe stores all your gen­er­ated pass­words in an en­crypted vault, and the En­cryp­tion Tool of­fers a sim­ple way to en­crypt plain text so it can be shared safely. The PIN gen­er­a­tor can cre­ate PINS of vary­ing lengths – from four numbers right up to 100, de­pend­ing on your needs.

The Pass­word Lab is for when you need a stronger pass­word than one pro­duced by the Quick Pass­word op­tion. You can spec­ify its length, and whether to in­clude numbers, lower and/ or up­per case let­ters, spe­cial char­ac­ters, um­laut marks, brack­ets, math­e­mat­i­cal sym­bols and even cus­tom sym­bols of your own choos­ing. Pass­words you cre­ate here are saved in a list and can be ex­ported as a TXT or HTML file.

If you’re not sure how se­cure an ex­ist­ing lo­gin is, open the Check Pass­word tool, type or paste it in and its strength will be dis­played be­low.

Fi­nally, the Add Sym­bol tool lets you con­struct a pass­word sim­ply by click­ing the el­e­ments to in­clude – up­per­case let­ters, low­er­case let­ters, numbers and char­ac­ters – to make your lo­gins im­pos­si­ble to guess.
