Alright, I know. That’s a really bad policy, right? So, I started looking for an elegant password generator app for my Mac. There are plenty online, most free, and many Mac apps that create tough, secure passwords. Guess what? There’s only one app that speaks.
Speak Easy To Me, Baby
In marketing, they say that differentiation is key. If every Mac app that generates long, tough, and mixed letter and number and symbol passwords does the same thing, what can an app developer do to climb above the noise?
Make more noise. Noise, as in a password generator that speaks the password.
Doorman is the Mac app that’s a tough password generator.
Even better, it creates passwords that are easier to speak than they are to remember.
For basic passwords, use Doorman to create tough-to-break, highly secure passwords up to 32 characters in length. You decide the length and the type of characters.
Upper case. Lower case. Numbers. Special characters. Doorman does the rest, including a visual scale so you can see how tough your password really is (the password I use for everything got only one bar—easy to remember, not so secure).
Doorman is drop dead simple to use. Select the options from the check buttons, then click the Create Password button.
The password is generated and can be stored in Doorman’s history (which doesn’t get saved). More green bars in the Stength meter means the password is stronger.
A quick search online turns up a dozen or so Mac apps that generate passwords (most have not been updated in recent years). There are even online password generators. It’s tough to compete against free, so what’s different with this one?
Doorman does one thing that’s quite unique.
It creates a Speakable Password—a special combination of syllable construction formed into a password, which may make it easier to remember.
That’s better than using your mother’s name, right?
I log in to about two dozen different sites from local bank to Twitter to Facebook and others. The user name varies a bit, but most of the passwords are the same or derivatives of the same basic password. Doorman is the tool that makes it point and click easy to create a password that’s not easily guessed.
If our Macs are so powerful and smart, why can’t it recognize our voices and just let us login wherever we please, sans password?
