The Password Generator is a tool for creating random passwords.
This tool can be opened in different ways:
via the top bar, by clicking on the wheel symbol.
In order to generate a random password, proceed as follows:
Characters used to generate password: Choose which characters will be used for the password's creation (e.g. lowercase and/or uppercase letters).
Exclude similar-looking characters: Sets whether the program may use characters that look similar in order to create the password.
Maximum number of password characters: Limit the maximum number of characters of the final password. Up to 256 characters may be used.
To generate the password, now move your mouse cursor across the field below showing random data (in green). Your cursor's movements will select characters randomly and thereby generate a password.
Password: In this field will be shown the just generated password.
Clear (rubber symbol at the right of Password): Erases the generated password and enables you to create a new one.
Copy to Clipboard (file symbol at the right of Password): If you are content with the generated password, you can copy it directly to the clipboard.
Show/Hide Password (three dots at the right of Password): Displays the password either as 'normal' characters ("show") or as dots ("hide").
OK/Copy to Clipboard: Click here if you are content with the generated password. The password will then be copied to the clipboard or, if the window for adding/modifyin passwords is opened in the background, directly inserted into the fields Password and Confirmation.
If you need some more advanced options to be able to generate a very specific password, please refer to the Advanced tab.
