Readable Passphrase Generator for KeePass Review 0.6 Beta
What do you do when you have too many passwords to remember? Start using a password manager so that you can use a different password on each site while only having to remember one key phrase. It's a great way to keep your online accounts from becoming vulnerable if someone steals or guesses the default password you use for multiple sites.
But how do you make up a memorable yet secure key phrase? That's where the Readable Passphrase Generator for KeePass comes in. KeePass is a popular open source password manager that uses an encrypted database to store and access your passwords for different websites.
The Readable Passphrase Generator is a plugin that generates grammatically correct sentences whose meanings are complete nonsense. The fact that the generated passphrases are complete sentences makes them much easier to remember than a random collection of letters, numbers and special characters. However, their length makes them mathematically very difficult to crack for a computer. At the same time, the length, nonsense content and random generation make it very hard for a human hacker to guess your passphrase based on common phrases or any knowledge of your personal life.
Examples of passphrases generated by the program include:
- Normal Strength: a wound rebuffs an incline
- Strong strength: the statesman will burgle amidst lucid sunlamps
- Insane strength: plaid foresails repel ashamedly upon the birdbath
