While passwords may seem obsolete in this climate of security threats, websites will continue to ask for login credentials. Thereâ€™s no getting around it. You will still need to come up with a password for any new logins, you will sometimes have strict password guidelines to follow, and sometimes youâ€™ll even have to change your password every few weeks. Some websites have implemented multi-factor authentication to guard against password hacking, but for those that donâ€™t, a strong password is needed to ensure protection.
So, how are you supposed to come up with a complicated password every single time?
SingleHop is here to help! Weâ€™ve developed a password generator that will generate a password based on specific criteria (or not), so the automated system can do the thinking for you. You just have to remember it.
You can generate a general password, have the generator follow specific website rules by selecting the appropriate checkboxes, produce as many as 10 passwords at a time, and decide how memorable your password will be.
We also have an advanced password generator that gives you the ability to select the complexity options for your password: uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers, symbols, and no similar characters. You can also generate up to 10 passwords at a time and choose how many characters you want the password to be.
When choosing a new password, be sure to keep these rules in mind:
- Passwords should be at least 10 characters.
- For stronger passwords, they should have mixed case letters and include symbols and numbers.
- Do not use dictionary words.
- Do not use a family name.
- Do not write your password down and/or store it in a public place.
- Do not use password sequencing (Myp@ssword1, Myp@ssword2, Myp@ssword3, etc.).
