    Anyone considering using any 3rd party to generate a password should think very hard about this.

    This may be a genuine service, but I would never ever use a service such as this.

    On a very basic level I don't see how this is any different to a spam post.

    The password must contain letters, numbers, and other special symbols
    sorry this is way out of date

    see for example here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-40875534

    as far as a computer is concerned a character is a character is character, they are all the same and it makes no difference at all to a hacking program [a jumble of so-called special characters might make it less easy for someone looking over your shoulder, but you are not going to let that happen are you?]

    as is sadly the case a lot of industry lags behind on this still

    you need long passwords that are easy to remember and at the very least 24 characters; twelve is too short, what you need are as high a number of permutions as possible

    and as the referrenced article states - a reputable password manager is what you should be aiming for

    The point is more about whether or not people should trust any password of any kind handed to them by a website they know nothing about.

    Do you trust the password to be difficult to crack? Do you trust the website not to be handing out the same password to multiple people? Do you trust the website not to be passing the password to third parties? Do you trust the website not to be harvesting what it can about you and squirreling that away with your free password?

    On a secondary level should we be following links to unknown websites in the first place and assuming they are working in our best interest?

    The link to the site may be bona-fide, but I can't tell and I doubt anyone else can. It seems to be operating from Russia with the poster residing in the Ukraine.

    If one wants an easy to remember password,one should use a sentence.
    Besides there are password manager apps that are offline and provided with a built-in generator.

    I think that should be a given Paul... to anyone who understands security, anyway...

    sure thing Hans, hence the 'foraging ducks' example, a line from a book..

    Hi antony,

    Although several members have started a dialog with you here, I must point out that you have posted a link on your first post, which if you'd read our guidelines, is not permitted. Moreover, you are soliciting advice on your own product, which goes against the spirit of TalkGraphics.

    I have to conclude, because all you've done is posted but not engaged in a dialog here, that you're simply hitting on our community for as self-serving purpose.

    I am removing the link in your post and locking this thread. If you have a problem with this, please contact me.
