Password Generator

Enpass has a built-in password generator that creates a strong and unique password every time you require one.

Generating Passwords

The password’s complexity can be altered by adjusting password recipes, i.e, pronounceable password recipe and random password recipe.

Note

Enpass uses zxcbvn algorithm to give you the realistic estimation of password strength.

Here’s how to do it:

  • While generating random passwords, you can decide the number of digits, symbols and uppercase letters you want in your password, in that particular priority.

  • For pronounceable password, you can choose to use Uppercase, Digits and any one from the available separators.

The Avoid Ambiguity button removes the following ambiguous letters from your password:

1 (one), l (small L) and I (eye) O (oh) and 0 (zero).
