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.
