Generate a random password
Regex Password Vault includes a random password generator to create strong random passwords. It is strongly recommended that you use random passwords for your accounts when practical. Random passwords are significantly harder for attackers to guess than passwords formed from dictionary words or meaningful patterns of letters and numbers. Using a password manager like Password Vault makes it easy for you to use the strongest passwords possible.
To generate a random password
1.Typically, you will want to generate a random password for a password record. To do this, edit an existing password record or create a new password record. Then click the Password button.
2.Under Password length, choose how many characters you want the password to contain.
3.Under Character types, use the checkboxes to specify which types of characters you want the password to contain. The character types are as follows:
•Uppercase letters (A-Z)
•Lowercase letters (a-z)
•Custom (a user-specified list—to add characters to the list, type them in the box without spaces or separators)
4.Optional Use the Minimum numeric controls to specify the number of each type of character that should be guaranteed to appear in the password. Often, this requirement will be dictated by the account you are creating the password for. For example, your password might be required to contain at least one uppercase letter, one lowercase letter, and one number.
5.A random password will be displayed. Click Generate to see more choices.
