It’s already a rule of thumb to have a solid password for your online banking as well as social media accounts for your own personal safety. Hackers are growing in numbers, and their tools and MOs are getting better over a short period of time. There are several ways to create a strong and reliable password for your online account needs. You don’t actually need to spend a lot in order to have an extra layer of security for your finances and personal information. Most of the time, you can get these tools for free.

Here are some resources that you can make use of should you have the need to create a strong password for your online accounts.

LastPass

 

LastPass is a service that remembers all your passwords so you don’t have to. Their password generator tool is a useful tool that quickly makes a strong password for you. Just tell it the minimum amount of characters you want it to be, click “Generate”, and a password is created.

One of the nicer features about this generator is its ability to generate a “pronounceable password.” This is a password that can be read out loud, making it slightly easier to remember. If this is a feature you’d like, select this option and keep generating a password until it creates something pleasing.

Random.org Password Generator

 

Random.org has provided random number generation based on background radiation, which is one of the more randomly-occurring phenomenon in nature. Their password generator uses this method to become the most “truly random” way to generate strong passwords online. By default, it won’t contain symbols and letters that are commonly confused with one another. If you want, you can even re-use it as a randomization from a previous date or from a preset seed.

Secure Password Generator

 

Secure Password Generator is a simple way to make a strong password. You can set how long you want your password to be, from 6 all the way to 2048 characters. This is useful if you want to use it on a site with a strict password length requirement. You can pick and choose what elements are included in your password, such as disabling similar-looking characters or getting rid of symbols that some sites might dislike. It even has a “remember your password” section, which breaks the password down into more memorable elements.

Random Keygen

 

Want a password instantly? Simply head over to random keygen, and the passwords are already waiting for you! What makes this option useful is its wide range of different passwords and keys to be used for different applications. “Memorable passwords” focus on creating a password that’s easy to remember while still holding up to brute force. If passwords being memorable isn’t a top priority (either because you have a password manager or a stellar memory!), you can use very strong passwords that are sure to keep you secure. The site also generates passwords that can be used for WPA and WEP routers too.
