How to: Generate Random Passwords

How to: Generate Random Passwords

Sometimes one of the issues I have is coming up with Random Passwords. It takes time to play around with the keyboard and although just hitting random keys seems easy I struggle with that. This is specially true when you are trying to set passwords for a long list of users. There is a tool/utility on the web that generates random passwords for you. I would advise you access the website using SSL (https) to secure the communication and then the list of passwords you obtain change some characters here and there for added security plus add some special characters if the target system supports them. Below is the link you can use. I have pre-configured it so that it uses SSL, generates 100 random passwords of length 24 to have strong protection:
