PassPhrase Generator

Through 20 years of effort we've successfully trained everyone to use passwords that are hard for humans to remember but easy for computers to guess.

Inspired by the xkcd comic: 1)

Passphrase

Sorry, JavaScript is required!
this is not a password

  • This password is generated entirely in your browser; the server has no possible way to record which password you choose.
  • Adding at least one randomly capitalized letter and a numeral or punctuation will make your password significantly stronger (harder for computers to guess).

To test relative strength, copy and paste one of the suggested passwords into one of these testing sites to see how long it might take for a computer to brute-force guess your password:


Length is the most important part of a password!




A cryptographically stronger password generator (random “seed” generated for each visit)2) can be found at: http://fourmilab.ch/javascrypt/pass_phrase.html

The fact that many people use the password generator on this page is in effect an additional random seed and makes it difficult for an attacker to predict the order of passwords that will be generated for any particular user. A random “seed” created for each user would increase the entropy of the sequence that passwords are selected. The random seed for this service is regenerated regularly, but not for every visit.
