One issue that keeps cropping up is passwords. Either they’re too simple and easily stolen or hacked, or they’re forgotten by the user. It doesn’t take much effort to find utilities which create more complex passwords, and many are free. Here’s another one that could not be much easier to use.
Longer Is Better
From a Mac and PC administrator’s perspective, when it comes to passwords, longer is better. No, longer passwords are not easier to remember or use, but the math implies they’re more secure.
So, how do you get a longer and more complex password? Fortunately, for Mac users there are a few dozen password management and password generator utilities available.
Perhaps the easiest way to create a complex password is also free. It’s called, cleverly enough, PasswordCreator. All it does is create complex passwords and, with a click, automatically copy it to the Mac’s clipboard.
Use the slider bar to select the number of characters for the password, for eight to 200. Then, select options to Use Caps, Use Numbers, Use Symbols.
Click the button to generate a new password which is also copied to the Mac’s clipboard, ready to be used or saved. That’s it. There’s really no excuse for not having a longer, more complex password, but there is a problem remembering and managing multiple complex passwords.
For that, there are a number of password management apps available for Mac users, a few are available in the list below or Click Here.
