Password generators.

5 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

Some advise from those who know please.

At the moment there seems to be a push or strong encouragement for people to install password generators to protect against hackers...I have a couple of questions...

  1. Is tis secure? The reason I ask is you need to provide an email address and password to develope an account...To me a hacker just has to crack your password and they have access to all of your stored passwords in one area...
  2. If this is advised, which are the best programmes to install?

Cheers.

I wish I could help but I'm nowhere near an expert in this bigdaddy. I'll ask the wife and her colleague at school as they know a lot about this kind of thing.

Wife says:

1. Don't use one that is only web based.

2. Buy a program that you download and keep on your computer. 

3. Wife really likes one called 1Password that's available for Mac, Apple, and phones.

Thanks mate,

Appreciate you doing that for me.

Why Not a web based generator?

Cheers.

I would assume anything on the web can be more easily hacked? That's how Russian hackers got into power plants etc here in the U.S.
